This course is specifically targeted toward developing a better mental focus for leading trad routes. To accomplish this, we need to develop trust in our gear and jamming ability. We’ll develop this trust by falling on gear, moving continuously when jamming, quick and precise gear placement, and improving mental focus through the application of the Warrior’s Way. You’ll leave knowing how to take appropriate risks on trad routes with improved mental focus. 

You will come away from the training with tools to manage the risk of leading trad climbs, gain experience falling on your gear, refine your movement skills to find more flow, and you’ll learn how to focus your attention effectively so you’re more committed when climbing.

Pre-Requisite Experience:

-Able to lead 5.8 sport or top-rope 5.9 with no falls

-Climb indoors/outdoors at least 1-2 times per week

-At least 6 months of continuous climbing experience within the last year
