The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices.
THIS ACTIVITY IS LIMITED TO 4 PARTICIPANTS, A VOLUNTEER, AND ORGANIZER (6 PEOPLE TOTAL). ONE PARTICIPANT SPOT IS AVAILABLE. This is a clinic for experienced toprope climbers on the fundamentals of sport leading and lead belaying. If you have always wanted to try leading sport this is your chance. We will cover gear and techniques including proper lead belay, leading sport (bolted) routes, sport anchors, and safety. Climbers will faux lead on toprope while practicing clipping bolts and lead belaying on a second lead rope. Participants will need shoes, harness, and belay device with a locking carabiner. Please bring quickdraws if you have them. There is a suggested $15.00 clinic donation. This outdoor clinic will last a few hours. Experienced climbers who wish to assist with this clinic and share their experiences are encouraged to volunteer. Please include in your RSVP email: full name, phone number, WMC member status, date you want to attend, gear owned, and prior climbing experience. As suggested by public health authorities and climbing associations, be prepared for social distancing, symptom questions, and use of hand sanitizer and masks.
