Description

This event is for GVSU Faculty and Staff who are interested in learning more about the adventurous and exciting sport of indoor rock climbing.  Although we are happy to tailor the content to fit the needs of the group, general topics of discussion may include:

  • Different styles of climbing
  • Basic equipment and function
  • Routes & rating systems
  • Basic body position and technique
  • General safety

Some things are best learned through practice and this workshop includes a few of them.  Please dress in comfortable clothing that allow you free range of motion.  Please note that the end time of this workshop is approximate.  Feel free to stay later or leave earlier.

Please RSVP for this workshop at least 24 hours in advance so we may adequately prepare.
