Warrior’s Way Falling & Commitment Clinic

 

Earth Treks Climbing Centers

Rockville: Tuesday, May 19 (6-11pm)

Columbia: Thursday, May 21 (6-11pm)

 

This clinic addresses fear of falling and improving commitment. We’ll do falling, movement, and resting exercises and apply all learned skills to a challenging route. We’ll do this in small increments creating appropriate progressions for each individual student. You’ll leave with a structured method for taking appropriate risks with diminished fear.

This clinic is taught by Arno Ilgner the author of  The Rock Warriors Way.

$99 for Members& $119 for Non-members

All participants will receive a free laminated reminder card, a reference pdf on all exercises and FREE follow-up lessons.

This clinic is limited to 8 participants. Pre-registration is required.
