The adventure

This two hour class is for beginner climbers who are looking to learn the basics of climbing techniques to help them jump start their bouldering journey. The class will cover a wide breadth of concepts from mental strategy to novel techniques that will give participants confidence moving forward!

The plan

1. Meet Up and Gear Up

Our meeting point is just outside of Leavenworth along the scenic Cascade Highway #2. I like to start the classes early in the morning so we have plenty of time to climb. I'll have all of the equipment we need for the climbing. From our meeting point, it's a short hike to our climbing destination.
