Beyond the Basics

Stuck in a rut? Not getting any better? Perhaps it’s time to reach Beyond the Basics - a class designed for novice climbers looking to break through the learning curve.

In this class series you will learn the key to climbing your best. It’s not how strong your muscles are, but how you use them. Technique and skill will allow you to advance through the grades. This series is offered in weekly, 2-hour courses, 3 consecutive weeks each month. We supply rental shoes and chalk during the class and throw in a Month Membership for non-members so you can practice between lessons. All courses taught by Scott Leeper unless otherwise indicated.

Advanced Skills & Tactics

Expand your technical repertoire with Advanced Skills and Tactics. Learn the skills and methodology of the most capable climbers. This class introduces advanced lower body techniques, dynamic movement, and basic strength training. Includes a Month Membership for non-current members. Designed for those climbing V4 and up.

  • $110 per person. $90 for Annual Members.
  • Thursdays from 7-9 PM
  • May dates coming soon...

Self-Care for Climbers

Overuse injuries are common among climbers and have been experienced by most climbers during their career. They build slowly and are notoriously difficult to treat. When these injuries persist, you can't stay at the top of your game. This 90-minute educational course focuses on myofascial release*, self-massage techniques, and targeted stretches to relive and prevent common climbing aches and pains.

*Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. When the fascia is released, the musco-skeletal system can be realigned, improving health and promoting well-being.

  • $30 per person. $25 for Annual Members.
  • Wednesday, April 22 at The Circuit Tigard 7-8:30 PM

Spring Training Course

Get ready for the Summer climbing season with 6 weeks of training. There will be very little climbing involved in this fitness-focused course. We'll be dangling from finger boards, crushing campus ladders, and using free weights to get you fit for Summer sending. Participants will learn the basics of hangboarding, safe and effective use of campus rungs, and basic injury prevention. Recommended for intermediate to advanced climbers (V4+). This 90-minute training course meets on Mondays for six weeks at The Circuit Southwest. Includes a 30-minute consultation to tailor your training.
