Is anyone out there interested in Outdoor rock climbing classes?
I just took the "Self Rescue Class" from Outdoor Adventure Club today.
It's a great class taught by Richard Bothwell, who runs the club.
I've also taken his anchors class which got me started on my path of multipitch lead climbing.
Anyway I figured there are likely people that want to transition from the gym to real rocks.
I talked to Richard today after the class and he said he'd be happy to put together classes for South Bay Rock Climbing.
They offer a number of classes at different levels, which I'll copy below.
If you're interested, I can tell you Richard is a great person to learn from.
They usually need just 3 people to put together a class.
Beginner Climbing Days: Our full day beginner climbing days are perfect for anyone who has never climbed before, or anyone with limited indoor climbing experience. We place an emphasis on teaching the belay (safety) system to the highest modern standard on beginner days.
Beyond Basics Climbing Days: Beyond basics climbing days are full days and appropriate for climbers of any skill level who can tie in and belay competently and confidently at the start of the day. We'll focus on getting as many climbs in as possible during the day. Your Outdoor Adventure Club guide will give you tips and instruction throughout the day to coach you through the climbs.
Women's Climbing Days: Women are excellent climbers, and our Women's Climbing Days encourage women of all climbing skill levels to come together, climb together and support each other as you work through challenges and achieve your goals. These are full day trips.
Climber's Gear and Anchor Class: Our Gear & Anchor Class prepares you to set up your own climbing anchors when you go climbing with your friends. In this class, you'll learn/review knots, learn to place gear, and learn how to bring it all together to build top rope anchors in just about any situation.
Climber's Learn to Lead Class: The Learn to Lead Class gets you ready to climb on the "sharp end" of the rope. Class size is small to allow for great personal attention and feedback from our professional guides. It's a full day of both "classroom style" learning and climbing.
Climber's Self-Rescue Class: The Self-Rescue Class should be taken by anyone who climbs outdoors, regardless of climbing skill. This class prepares you to deal with common situations found in outdoor climbing, like what to do if your partner falls or is injured.
Climber's Multipitch Techniques Class:Spending a day in our multipitch class can save hours of climbing time, and the frustration of tangled ropes and cluttered belays when you are hundreds of feet off the ground. Learn to do it correctly and efficiently the first time!
