*Note: Due to a very large showing of B and C-age athletes at try outs, a few B-category athletes are blended into the early practice time. These B-category athletes will often be grouped with the oldest and most experienced C-category athletes during practice (typically kids who are in the same grade but missed the USA Climbing category cut off by a few months).
Regionals Weekend Training Camp
We will be running a Regionals Training Camp on May 7th & 8th from 9:00am-4:00pm for those who would like to have some extra competition climbing practice/preparation. This will be a very beneficial experience for any climbers looking to compete at Regionals this year. The curriculum will include a mock onsight competition with the many elements that are specific to a Regional level comp. Below is some of what we will cover:
- Scoring and comp format review
- Warm-up in Bouldering area (ISO)
- Climbing on-sight routes
- Redpoint tries on earlier routes
- Discussions on the following:
- onsight burn
- Iso issues
- Why did you fall?
- What would you change?
- How we can use this camp to help
- Practice like you play
- Route-setting tricks that help you read sequences
- “Trying 100% then forgetting and moving on (mentally) to the next route. You can’t change the past…..so let it go. If you give 100% you have no regrets.”
- Develop good habits now
- What works for you?
- Dealing with adverse conditions
- Where:Earth Treks Golden
- When:May 7th and May 8th 9am-4pm daily
- Cost – $150 members / $175 non-members
This course is dependent on sufficient enrollment. If there is insufficient enrollment, we will cancel the class and issue full refunds on April 28th. Please register early to help us with planning.

Morrison Bouldering Day Trip April 23, 2016
On April 23rd, we are offering an outdoor bouldering day trip to Morrison. The bouldering in Morrison is an excellent climbing resource. Over the past two years, the Earth Treks Climbing Team has supported efforts to clean and maintain this sandstone bouldering area. Now that the trail work is complete, we would like to invite everyone out for an afternoon of bouldering with the coaches. A parent or designated chaperone will be responsible for transportation and supervision of each athlete during this day trip. Earth Trek’s Coaches will meet you and your child in the Soda Lakes parking area for an amazing day of outdoor bouldering.
Preregistration is required for this program. Check out the details and link for registration below:
