New River Gorge Clinic

September 18 & 19, 2021

Advanced Beginner to Intermediate Women’s Sport Climbing Clinic

 

Description:

 

Welcome to the New! A plethora of devilishly techy sport climbing awaits you on the bullet hard sedimentary Nuttall Sandstone. A sport climber’s paradise with over 3,000 routes!

 

Our all women’s clinic is designed for advanced beginner to intermediate climbers looking to hone their sport climbing skills. 

Whether you’ve been climbing at the gym and looking to venture outside or you’re taking your sport climbing to the next level (maybe breaking into the 5.9 or 5.10 realm), this clinic is for you! 

 

Over the two days, we will solidify the skills required to sport climb outdoors: how to set up top ropes on bolted anchors; sport leading; following; cleaning anchors; climbing movement; and redpoint tactics.
