“Why is climbing so popular? If you haven’t been climbing, you haven’t experienced the adrenaline thrill, the amazing sense of accomplishment, and the glorious tired-but-happy feeling at the end of the day. If you have, you need no explanation.” -Outdoors at UVA

This workshop is a place to start and it is intended to teach zero to little experienced climbers the basics of climbing. After the workshop, you will be well prepared to pass the belay tests given at the other indoor gyms and with a bit of practice, climb outdoors!

Topics covered:
-Choosing proper size harness and shoes (We will do this in the gear room)
-Tighten your harness and tie a figure-eight knot
-Anchoring in and setting up the belay device
-Belay with an ATC using a safe belay technique
-Use proper commands

This workshop is NOT for the experienced climbers (except helpers) and I will not be teaching any specific climbing technique.

We will meet in front of Echols promptly at 5:30pm and go into the gear room to dress you up. At the gym, you will be partnered with an awesome fellow club member. You will have some time to enjoy the climbs after some practice.

You Provide: 1+ Liter water, comfortable athletic shorts (medium length), socks, nicely cut finger nails, funniest/dorkiest t-shirt you own, $9 to get into the gym (CASH ONLY!!!)

Club Provides: ride to RT (because the gym is so close, gas will not be reimbursed but the drivers will receive priority), climbing gears

Because these workshops are on a high demand, if you must withdraw, please do so immediately.
