 This clinic addresses fear of falling and improving commitment. Participants will do falling, movement, and resting exercises and apply all learned skills to a challenging route. This will be done in small increments creating appropriate progressions for each individual student. Each student will leave with a structured method for taking appropriate risks with diminished fear.

Students learn: 

-To fall safely
-To give a cushioned belay
-To distinguish between no- and yes-fall zones
-How to engage no- and yes-fall zones
-To break a climb into smaller risk events
-Better risk assessment
-How to rest effectively
-To improve breathing
-To trust the body
-To create flow and momentum
-To commit more deliberately
-To reduce fear
