  • Day 1: Crack Climbing Technique

    Day one begins with taping. We will learn functional tape glove techniques and get ropes hung on classic crack climbs. Instructors will demo the requisite jams, and break each down into a few key principles. Our instructors often hang on a rope adjacent to the climb so that we can provide real time instruction.

  • Day 2: Mileage

    Day two is focused on getting climbers on the rock as much as possible. Expect a full day on routes. We will do as much climbing as possible and get students experience on all widths of cracks.
