DEVIL’S LAKE STATE PARK

This course is specifically targeted toward developing better mental focus for leading trad routes. To accomplish this, we need to develop trust in our gear and jamming ability. We’ll develop this trust by falling on gear, moving continuously when jamming, quick and precise gear placement and improving mental focus through application of the Warrior’s Way. You’ll leave knowing how to take appropriate risks on trad routes with improved mental focus.

Course taught by guest instructor, Jon Richard, an endorsed Warrior’s Way trainer and AMGA-certified Rock Guide.
