Love Leading with the Granite Girls

Love Leading with the Granite Girls

This Fall, Granite Girls will be offering a class devoted to lead climbing- Love Leading. It's for women who are already lead certified but want to improve their practical skills and overcome the heady challenges of climbing on lead.

  • As climbers- we will perfect clipping skills, body position, and the mental games that come into play when leading.
  • As lead belayers- we will become comfortable giving perfect catches, and understanding exactly where to stand to be safe for the climber and the belayer.

Because the class is limited to 4 people, it will be offered a few times this fall.

The first 4-week sessions will be on Tuesdays 7:15pm-9:15pm, meeting September 23, September 30, October 7, October 14

Pricing is the same as every other Granite Girls 4-week session. $205 for members $240 for non-members This is a great way to push your climbing limits, beyond physical strength, and accelerate your growth as a climber.

If you are interested in signing up for the first session, please contact Gillers. Hurry! This class is limited to 4 ladies, spots are first come first serve, get your spot now!

Interpret that as you will but we want to see you climbing in costumes so you can win cool prizes! Since it's a pub night, we'll have the usual beer tasting, pizza eating, post climbing relaxing and chillin' in the lounge. Costume contest and halloween fun are free bonuses!
