Offered Clinics

The Rock Rescue Clinic and Women's Rock Clinic are two courses that will take your skills to the next level. In each of these courses, besides having a lot of fun, safety and learning are our core focus.

Learn basic rescue techniques for high-angle rescue situations on both top-rope and multi-pitch routes. You owe it to your climbing partners to take this course…or better yet, take the course with them!
