rock climbing sensei


You’ve been out on the rock and you know your way around a handful of climbing knots. You spent some time at the climbing gym scaling different walls and learned how to top rope at your favorite Colorado mountain. But you’re amped for more and it’s time to build on those skills.


Our Sensei course will help you move more efficiently on the rock with greatly improved footwork, implement different climbing sequence types, and gain confidence to increase in grade. You’ll also learn to climb cracks and slabs. The crux of these lessons is progression, as your next goals might include lead climbing or trad.
