Rock Warrior’s Way: Falling with Laur Sabourin
Who should take this clinic?
This clinic is not for beginners. You must have at least 6 months of continuous climbing experience and know the basics knots, belaying, and be able to climb 5.9 without falling/hanging.
About the Clinic
Being effective in climbing requires us to understand the consequences of our decisions and actions. In climbing the main consequence is falling. By understanding how to fall we diminish the chance of injury and allow us to focus attention effectively on climbing.
You’ll learn how to:
Fall safely through progressive falling practice, give a dynamic (cushioned) belay, fall while clipping or committing, distinguish between no- and yes-fall zones, deal with the fear of falling, focus on what you can control, reduce fear, and more
