*NEW* Climb 5.10 in The Gym w/ Chris Wall

This 8 week course is for the newer or returning climbers who are trying to build a solid technical climbing foundation for climbing 5.10 and beyond in the gym. Whether you are in your first year of climbing, or returning after a long break, this course is designed to teach and solidify climbing fundamentals that all climbers need to make progress safely and consistently.

In the absence of a strong technical foundation, climbers must rely on strength to progress. In many cases this strength is applied to movements that lack biomechanical effectiveness, or worse, endanger the climber to injury. Even climbers able to climb 5.11 or harder can be hindered or halted in their progress due to a lack of fundamental skills.

During this course you will learn:

  • The 6 fundamental body positions
  • Keys to precise footwork
  • Using your body’s structure to your advantage
  • Tactics for success on and off the wall
  • Fundamental climbing training principles
  • Climbing harder with less effort

Speed up your progress, limit your vulnerability to injury, and get more satisfaction out of learning to climb 5.10 in the gym.

This course is taught by Team BRC’s Head Coach, Chris Wall. Chris has been teaching and training climbers of all abilities and experience levels for over 25 years. Come learn from one of the most experienced climbing coaches in the US.
