Bouldering workshop for beginners, to be held at the bouldering wall at our clubrooms. Note that this is NOT an equipment course, you'll be learning the basics of how to move around. Come in comfy exercise clothes, expect to do some bouldering! Club shoes are available for rental if you haven't got your own pair.

Climbing or bouldering can be a pretty hard sport to break into; just hanging on for a few minutes at a time is pretty exhausting when you're first starting out. Luckily, there's a ton of tips and tricks that you can learn to help you along. So if you're presented with a big wall and told to climb that thing and you've got no idea what to do with your appendages, come on down.

I'd also like to talk about the most commonly observed injuries, whether incurred by accident or from overzealous training. Stay safe, learn how to avoid such injuries!

Seasoned climbers are more than welcome; I've still got much to learn myself. If you can't make it this session, I'll probably be organizing a second one after the Intro Trip.
