This 7.5 hour course, spread over three sessions, is designed to fully immerse you in the culture of climbing. In the first session we dish out the basics with an introduction to belaying using a GriGri, tying the figure 8 follow through knot and how to climb efficiently through technique. In the second session, you'll get the scoop on Bouldering and creating a well rounded climbing session that includes warming up, injury prevention, conditioning and stretching. The final session is the cherry on top where you'll get to improve your climbing footwork, body position and redpoint technique. Plus, learn to transfer your GriGri belay skills to a tube-style belay device (ATC) so that you can pass a belay test in a non-GriGri facility. All gear is included for the sessions.
