rock climb - 101 clinic - learn to climb - April 28, 2018

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. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
THIS ACTIVITY IS LIMITED TO 8 PARTICIPANTS. 2 MORE SPOTS ARE AVAILABLE. 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 want to improve your fundamental skills, this is your chance. This is also a great opportunity to meet and learn with other interested beginner climbers. 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, belay device, helmet, and shoes. (REI in Salt Lake rents helmets & shoes). Helmets are mandatory for anyone attending, even if you will not be climbing. There is a $10.00 workshop donation. 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.
