“How do I hold that round thing? My fingers don’t fit and I can’t possibly pull myself up on that sprinkle on the wall!” Don’t worry, you’ll learn to get there with this class. Identifying holds and knowing how to grip there is an integral part of everyone’s climbing experience and a great place to start if you’re new to climbing.
Listen very carefully to the sounds of your favourite climber…chances are, their feet are not making a single sound, simply dancing delicately and precisely up the wall. Understanding how and where to place your feet while climbing is crucial to success. This class will focus on how to generate power and precision by conscientiously and carefully placing your feet in the best way.
