Struggling to push past the fear of falling on the sharp end of the rope? On Wednesday, October 25 from 5:30-9:30pm Warrior's Way Instructor Adam Mitchell is coming back to RJ Centennial to run a falling and commitment clinic. You will learn to assess fall risks, how to mentally prepare for falls, and will incrementally build to bigger and bigger falls to help you get beyond the limitations caused by fear.

Intro to Multi-Pitch and Transitions Clinic
On Wednesday, August 30 RJ Centennial hosted Kevin Capps, founder of Denver Mountain Guiding, for this exciting clinic. Kevin has over 15 years of climbing experience and showed us the ropes just in time for transitioning to multi-pitch climbing outdoors. In this clinic, we learned how to build a proper anchor for multi-pitch climbing, how to belay for a follower, transitioning from follower to leader, among other key skills for multi-pitch. Keep your eyes open for more DMG clinics in the months to come!
