When / Where:
Thursday, Feb 18, Rock’n & Jam’n #2, Centennial, CO (6-10pm), 303-254-6299
-
Taught by certified Warrior's Way trainer, past editor of Climbing Magazine, and long time Colorado climber Jeff Achey.
-
Investment:
$69 for gym members
$79 for non-members
-
Max number: 8
-
Clinic description: The Warrior's Way® teaches how to focus attention during the climbing process, especially when you’re full of doubt and under stress. By focusing this way you improve your commitment and climb more deliberately.
-
You’ll learn to:
• Become aware of your mind’s limiting tendencies
• Use your mind’s intelligence to do effective risk-assessment
• Distinguish between no-fall and yes-fall zones
• Make appropriate risk decisions
• Practice falling in small increments
• Give a cushioned belay
• Engage your body to develop flow and momentum
• Deal with climbing stress
• Improve problem-solving skills
• Reduce fear, and more
-
Content of the class
• General: We’ll do movement exercises on moderate toprope/lead routes, some falling practice, and finish with a challenging route (lead or slack toprope) to apply what we’ve learned.
• First, we’ll develop awareness of our mental chatter.
• Next, we’ll do movement exercises to create flow and momentum.
• Next, we’ll practice falling.
• Next, we’ll learn how to assess risks effectively.
• Finally, we’ll apply everything we’ve learned: doing effective preparation, making appropriate risk decisions, and taking effective action.
-
Prerequisites for clinic:
• It’s helpful if you’ve read the The Rock Warrior’s Way or Espresso Lessons, but it isn’t absolutely necessary. You can email Arno (arno@warriorsway.com) for a pdf handout to become familiar with the Warrior’s Way® material.
• The clinic seems to be best for those who have hit a plateau, experience frustration, fear, loss of motivation, or other mental fitness issues.
• You DO need to know the fundamentals of knots, belaying, and basic climbing skills.
• You DO NOT need to be able to lead to take the clinic.
-
Equipment Needed:
• Harness, shoes, belay device, and a helmet (if you want to wear one). The gym usually provides lead ropes and sometimes helmets.

Would it of been to much to put all the dates and places in one thread, in a sort of mentally fit manner.

Sure plugs up the front page with a thread for each one.

Not that it's just about time, but
I just came back in after shoveling out a wood pile and my splitter and there's still six of them on the front page.

Arno, thanks. I think one would stay up front more often with replies from all the different areas going to bump the same thread each time.
