Sliding Scale Course Fees | Women’s Wilderness has created a sliding scale for all its Women’s programs in an effort to keep our courses affordable to a wide range of people. All our pricing scales are significantly below the prices of for-profit companies. The top price represents the actual cost to run the course, and the second two tiers represent scholarships. We set forth no criteria and trust that each individual will pay what they feel is appropriate.
Ready to get out of the gym and get outside? This course provides the instruction you need to do so safely under the mentorship of our awesome AMGA-certified climbing guides. You will be empowered by learning the basics of climbing outside in a group of supportive women – who could become your new climbing partners!
Climbing outside requires many more skills than gym climbing, from using a guidebook to find and select routes, clipping bolts as you lead a route, and setting up sport anchors, as well as safely cleaning those anchors. In this course, you will learn crucial skills that will set you on the path to sport climbing outside.
This course focuses on the following skills:
- Climbing technique on real rock
- Route selection/finding
- Clipping bolts properly
- Building an anchor on bolts
- Lead belaying
- Mock leading
- Cleaning sport anchors
(While you will learn proper technique for lead climbing and belaying, there is no actual lead climbing in this course. You will practice your skills in a mock lead situation on top-rope.)
