rock climbing 101 - workshop - July 25, 2015
This is a beginners workshop on the fundamentals of rock climbing plus equipment use & selection. If you have always wanted to experience climbing, are rusty & just want a refresher or just improve your fundamental skills this is your chance. This is also a great opportunity to meet other interested beginner climbers to learn with. We will cover gear & techniques including proper belay, top roping & climbing with a focus on safety. All are welcome but if you plan to actually climb you will need a harness as a minimum. (REI in Salt Lake may rent harness & shoes). Helmets are mandatory for anyone attending, even if you will not be climbing. There is a $10.00 workshop fee, the workshop will last from 3-4 hours depending on how much climbing we plan on doing. Experienced climbers who wish to share their expertise are welcome to come & help.
