Develop your skills a la carte! Skills & Drills is a new Summer class series designed to teach you the nuances of climbing technique. Each week will focus on a different skill set. Sign up for individual classes or the whole series. No experience required. Maximum 6 participants per class.

Learn climbing's most valuable skill! It is said climbing is 90% mental control and the rest is footwork. We will cover a variety of terrains and techniques for skilled and versatile footwork.

Body positioning is key to climbing your best. Perfect position and poise equal perfect movement and fluidity. Learn how to use your hips to pull and and go up!

Pace and rhythm are paramount. There is a time clock in bouldering. The minute you pull on the wall the clock starts ticking. This class will teach the essentials to out run the count down!

Overhangs aren't just for the strong. In this session we will explore strategies and techniques to tackle those most intimidating of angles.

Higher grades are all about proper strategy. Personal bests always come from concentrated endeavors. Learn how, where, and when to apply your efforts to achieve your highest grades yet!
