Womxn Rock: Intro To Leading Outdoors
Time & Location
About the Event
Intro to Leading Outdoors with Denver Mountain Guiding + She Sends Collective:
This clinic is aimed at arming each person with the knowledge of how to lead outside safely. With this in mind, we will talk about risk assessment, give you tips on how to find courage while up higher, and cover basic techniques to help you relax and find efficient clipping stances, and climb more efficiently. The goal of this clinic is to get you more familiar with leading as a practice & build confidence; practice creates confidence. If you are new to leading or haven't done it yet, this clinic is for you. Mock leading will be the first step for this clinic.
The cost of this clinic is $170. We have a sliding scale available, so if this is something you'd like to utilize, please email us.
