Now that the weather is nice outside, many people are starting to head outside to climb. But what if you don't know what it takes to climb outside. Berkeley Ironworks offers outside clinics geared to get indoor climbers up to speed to climb outside. Berkeley Ironworks employee Dave Altman has been climbing for more than 30 years and his outdoor classes are renowned for useful information and historical anecdotes.
Which clinic is right for you?
ROCK I: Intro to outdoor climbing
Basic anchors, knots, rappelling, simple self rescue, & climbing on rock unlike anything in the gym.
ROCK II: Intermediate outdoor climbing
More advanced anchors, gear placement, technique, and intro to leading.
Intro to Outdoor Bouldering
Footwork, spotting, games, history, using bouldering to improve technique for bigger climbs & as an independent sport. Emphasis will be on types of climbing different than in the gym.
