Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Rocky Top Gym
This trip is just for beginner climbers who already know how to belay and tie their knots. I’m willing to refresh you quickly if you’ve learned it before but have just forgotten, but I’m not willing to teach someone who’s never climbed before on this particular trip. I want to use the maximum amount of our time to make you a better climber and give you time to practice.
I will take some time at the beginning of this trip to go over some of the basic movements to make you a better and more efficient climber. After that, we’ll have the rest of the time to practice what you just learned and to ask me questions about what you learned. I’m not an AMAZING climber, but I do know how to get beginners moving towards feeling more comfortable in their climbing. That being said, please don’t come on this trip if you have a pretty good understanding of how to climb but you just want to be excellent; I can’t get you there.
Due to the nature of this trip, preference will be given to those who can belay and are beginner climbers.
There will not be a gear room before this, so if you want to come you’ll either have to own your own gear or rent from the gym. The fee I’m listing includes the cost of renting.
A ride to Rocky Top.
