Clinic Title: Warrior’s Way® Mental Fitness Espresso Clinic
-
Investment: $79 for non-members; $69 for gym members
Max number: 8 / clinic
-
LIMITED OPPORTUNITY: This is the only time this year to take advantage of this training.
-
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
We’ll do awareness, movement, breathing, and resting exercises on moderate routes. Then some falling practice. We'll finish with a challenging route to apply what we’ve learned.
-
Prerequisites for clinic:
• It’s helpful if you’ve read The Rock Warrior’s Way or Espresso Lessons, but it isn’t absolutely necessary.
• 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.
