Is it for you?
This course is designed for:
Basic & Intermediate level indoor rock gym climbers (you can top rope lower grade climbs < 5.9, you are not leading climbs).
People who have not climbed before or who have a little outdoor climbing experience but who are in good physical shape.
If you are an indoor climber and climb 5.9 and greater and you are leading or feel ready to lead you should consider our 'Rock Climbing Level 2 - Learn to Lead' course or if it's multi-pitch climbing you want then 'Hot Rock'.
Rock Evolution is an innovative and modern rock climbing development program designed for beginner to intermediate climbers.
This 5-day course incorporates elements from Yamnuska's ‘Rock 1 - Outdoor Rock Intro’ and ‘Rock 2 - Learn to Lead’ programs, starting with the basics of movement, equipment and the top rope system and progressing onto learning to lead on bolted sport climbs. The course also introduces instruction on the multi-pitch system, traditional gear placement/removal, rope handling techniques and of course plenty of movement skill coaching and development. Our program is designed to accelerate the learning curve with the goal of having guests become competent and independent top rope and sport lead climbers.
As with all Yamnuska programs, this course is taught by technically gifted instructors who are certified by the ACMG or other member countries recognized internationally by the IFMGA. Our personal approach to instruction allows for each participant to develop at their pace.
