Warrior’s Way Falling & Commitment Clinic

Sunday, Oct 19th (4-9pm) at RJ1  AND  Wednesday, Oct 22nd (6-11pm) at RJ2

logoWe are excited to offer another round of the Warrior’s Way Falling & Commitment Clinic with Arno Ilgner. Arno was a pioneering climber in the 1970′s and 1980′s and has since helped hundreds of students reach that next level in climbing by managing their fears. The Warrior’s Way Clinic teaches students how to focus attention under stress, which allows climbers to better deal with doubts and improve commitment. We practice falling, movement, breathing, and resting exercises in small increments to help each student progress. All skills learned will be applied to a challenging route during the clinic. You will leave the clinic with a structured method for taking appropriate risks with diminished fear. This class is limited to 8 participants and fills quickly, so sign up soon! Prerequisites: minimum 6 months of climbing experience; comfortably climb a 5.9 in the gym without falling or hanging; being able to lead climb is not required.

“Learn About Fear and Mental Control for Sport Performance”


Once again professional climber Matt Lloyd put on a stellar show to a maximum capacity crowd. He shared the science behind fear along with tips and tricks he has used over the years to keep his mental edge under the pressure of pushing the limits of modern rock and ice climbing grades.

Thank you to The Denver Beer Company for suppling the venue and great beers as well.

Climb Denver’s Backyard: A Day of Free Clinics, Beer, and BBQ

Climb Denver's Backyard

42 climbers showed up at the American Alpine Headquarters in Golden, Colorado on June 21st for the free “Climb Denver’s Backyard” event hosted by RJ, the American Alpine Club, and Outer Edge Performance. They headed out to climbing areas in Clear Creek Canyon and at North Table Mountain in order to cover topics just as building top rope anchors, an introduction to climbing outdoors, leading outdoor routes, and technique workshops.
The day concluded with a group of 70 gathering to enjoy some free BBQ and beer, compete in a crash-pad-stacking competition, and to watch a slideshow presented by professional climber Matt Segal.

Thank you to those who came out for the festivities, and to our event sponsors! It was a great day, but don’t take our word for it, check out reviews from some of the participants:

“All in all, I’d give the event five stars and would love to do it again if given the chance!”

“Aleya and Travis were awesome! Learned a lot about crag etiquette and safety. They also made me feel very comfortable about climbing outside. Wish we could have climbed more routes but thanks for a great learning experience!”

“The class was amazing. Mike was very instructive and payed close attention to each and every one of us to make sure we had the basics correct. Thank you so much! I look forward to climbing with you!”
