This training addresses falling directly to help improve commitment. We do progressive falling practice in a sport climbing environment, followed by movement, breathing, resting, and body/mind awareness exercises. Finally, students apply everything to a goal route. Students leave understanding how to take appropriate risks and how to commit to those risks. Course taught by guest instructor, Jon Richard, an endorsed Warrior’s Way trainer and AMGA-certified Rock Guide.
