We will begin our day covering various methods of taping to protect your hands for the hard work ahead. Before heading to the rock, we teach a wide variety of techniques, from finger locks to butterflies and toe jams to knee bars. After the demonstrations, each of you will have the opportunity to practice the techniques on our crack-simulation boards.
At the crag, we will set top-ropes on routes from 5.9-5.11 to provide the opportunity to practice jamming. I know that the grades may seem intimidating, but I guarantee that if you apply proper crack climbing technique the climbing will begin to make sense.
WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED:
The majority of women come to our clinics alone - somewhere around 95%. If you are hesitating to join because you would be coming solo, please know that we expect a majority of our participants to be joining by themselves, seeking community.
We generally have a wide range of ages at our retreats. The average tends to fall anywhere between the ages of 26 to 45. But we have had quite a few women in their 60's join as well. It really is up to the attitude and physical ability of the participant.
Working with industry leaders, She Moves Mountains has developed a detailed COVID response plan in line with CDC recommendations. We are happy to share details upon request. What this will look like for participants is daily temperature checks, daily covid symptom evaluations, frequent hand washing/sanitizing, and mask wearing anytime we cannot maintain 6 feet of physical distance between each other. Further screening may be required prior to the event as protocols evolve.
We have a very strict cancellation policy. Please review it before committing to this retreat.
