Grotto Fundamentals is an intermediate adult bouldering technique course. It’s been designed for those who have been experimenting with climbing on their own and would like to learn new techniques to help break into the intermediate (blue/red) boulder range. Learning new techniques can help to break through plateaus and soar to the top of a problem more efficiently. 

This six-week course will cover a different topic each week, including footwork techniques, strategies to use different hand holds, techniques to coordinate your body to generate dynamic movement, and strategies to read and solve a boulder problem.

Beginner Adult Technique classes are designed for those brand new to rock climbing. This six-week course will help you build comfort in the gym, learn climbing terminology, and begin to build climbing specific skills and strength. The majority of the course will be spent on the boulders, with some parts of the course practiced in the strength training area, on auto-belays, and on top rope routes. This course includes a top rope belay lesson. It is strongly recommended that you use climbing shoes for these sessions in order to get as much out of the sessions as possible.
