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.
This is a really, really cool course.
It’s hard to find climbing mentors who you trust, who have the knowledge and skills, and who are GREAT teachers…and have the time to really walk you through hands-on practice. Enter Women’s Wilderness.
This course will have an especially low student-to-instructor ratio so you will have experienced instructors right there with you, ready to answer all your questions and coach you through step-by-step practice of technical rock skills.
We will focus on:
- Cleaning sport climbing anchors safely
- Building sport anchors
- Lead theory for sport climbing – using quick draws, clipping correctly, climbing efficiently
- How to assess bolts for safety
- Mock sport leading (where you are on top-rope while also practicing leading a sport route)
- Any other questions about climbing outdoors!
This is a great class for anyone interested in learning about following or leading sport routes. You’ll leave the day feeling empowered to use your new skills, and able to assess your climbing partners for safety!
