Women's Fear of Falling Clinic
CONQUER YOUR FEAR. TRANSFORM YOUR CLIMBING.
What is the WRCS?
THE WOMEN’S ROCK CLIMBING SERIES aims to provide adventurous women with the means to develop and progress their climbing skills in a supportive, mentorship-styled learning environment.
This fast paced and fully comprehensive half day clinic includes many critical trips & tricks to conquer your fear of falling.
The mental aspect of climbing is not covered during a course, especially when it comes to lead climbing or multi-pitch climbing. A fear of falling (or basophobia) is surprisingly common among climbers and can often limit our climbing or prevent us from reaching certain climbng goals.
Join Bronwyn for a half-day clinic focussed on supportive group discussions, validation of fears and practice falls to increase your comfort with falling. The clinic will progress from top-rope falls to falling with protection at waist-level, followed by a discussion on progression techniques.
AM Session: 9 am to 1 pm
PM Session: 2pm to 6 pm
Meet Bronwyn at a local crag, where she will have everyone sign a waiver before having a safety discussion and performing a gear check. She will then discuss the day's objectives and lesson plan.
End the session with a debrief and discussion on progression techniques.

Women's Rock Rescue
As a climber, one needs to be self-sufficient in a high angle climbing environment and rope rescue skills are critical.
Women's Advanced Trad Clinic
Trad climbing, or traditional rock climbing, is the original style of rock climbing in which climbers set and remove their protection as they climb.
