  1. Hi, I am really interested in doing the Fall/Commit training camp. I reside in Melbourne Australia, so I will be wanting to attend something suitable. Your west coast probably. All info will be appreciated. My window is August September ish. Robbie

  2. Hi Robbie, Thanks for making contact. Our west coast trainer, Jeff Lodas (,, should be back in California end of August. He’s climbing in Canada right now so a little out of contact. He usually sets up training tours to California, Oregon, and Washington states in Spring and Fall. So, he may not have anything scheduled for August/Sept. But, I suggest contacting him; he can always set up something just for you.
