Clinic Overview:  This clinic will teach climbers technique to help them master overhanging climbs.  This will include tips for conserving energy, lengthening reach, and keeping your feet on the wall.  We'll start off by briefly discussing the importance of maintaining a good center of gravity before moving on to review specific upper body, lower body, footwork, and resting techniques.  Lessons learned at this clinic will help climbers improve their performance on both overhung boulders and roped climbs.

You must be a member of the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club - Mountaineering Section club (not just this Meet-Up group) to attend. Please see the Member Only Policy below. If you are not a member of PATC-MS, please sign up at http://www.potomacmountainclub.org/content/view/17/28/! to enjoy our array of great events.  Thank you.

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks so much to all of you who came out today. It was wonderful meeting you all and getting to climb with such a great group of women. I hope everyone learned a lot, and please feel free to get in touch with Eliddia or me to share any feedback on how we can improve this (or other) women's clinics in the future.

    I'm so sorry to drop out. I will be pulling an overnighter to meet a deadline and will be a zombie by 8am. Hope it will be repeated!

    Hi Melissa, at this point we don't have any concrete plans to hold another clinic, but it's definitely not out of the question. Stay tuned!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
