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 Transition' course or if it's multi-pitch climbing you want then 'Hot Rock'.
Rock Evolution is an innovative and modern climbing development program designed for fit beginners and for basic and intermediate indoor climbers. From our office in Canmore, Alberta we use the variety of rock climbing venues in Canmore, Banff, Kananaskis and Lake Louise to deliver our course curriculum.
This 5-day course incorporates elements from all of Yamnuska's rock programs, starting with the basics and progressing onto multi-pitch climbs, gear placement, rope handling techniques, and lots of personal movement skill coaching. Our program is designed to accelerate the learning curve with a focused program on all aspects of proper rock climbing technique. Rock climbing movement skills are typically used as a base for all other types of technical climbing.
The course is taught by technically gifted instructors who are also skilled coaches. Our personal approach to instruction allows for each participant to develop at their pace.
