The course takes your through a proven step-by-step system to get you to that advanced level in climbing in the fastest possible time (instead of spending years trying to learn all the tips, tricks, and techniques yourself).

What am I going to get from this course?

  • By practicing the techniques and tricks taught in this course, you will notice a very drastic speed improvement to how quickly you progress through increasingly harder routes.
  • You'll also have more fun because you'll progress in difficulty much quicker, and you won't get frustrated since you'll know exactly what to do to overcome any difficult sections.
  • You'll significantly decrease your chance of injury by learning the correct way to climb, instead of developing bad habits that can drastically increase your chance of injury.

Who is the target audience?

  • The course will most benefit both beginner/new and intermediate level climbers. Some advanced climbers may also find it useful to help detect and avoid any bad habits they may have formed over the years, as well as potentially add a few more tricks to their already large arsenal of skills.
