Introduction to indoor climbing workshop
March 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
March 1st | 7p to 8p EST | Instructed by Derek Braun
This virtual workshop is for anyone who wants to learn the basics of indoor rock climbing. Indoor rock climbing has exploded in popularity over the past several years. New, massive rock gyms are being built all over the country, and it is now a popular Olympic sport! Indoor climbing is an excellent way to get fit while having fun, and if you want to go outdoors, indoor climbing prepares you for it.
We will talk about the different disciplines of indoor rock climbing, where to find a gym, what gear you will want to purchase, and where and how you can get instruction. If we have time, we can discuss climbing terminology, climbing grades, and how to transition to climbing outdoors. I will answer any individual questions you might have about rock climbing in general.
This course is taught by Derek Braun, a Deaf Single Pitch Instructor certified by the American Mountain Guides Association.
