Not as structured as the other climbing courses, this course allows the student to start learning about climbing by making his or her own decisions, with the instructor providing support in the event that it's needed. Many students feel they learn more in this course than in any other climbing course. Rock climbing shoes are required. Course includes two classroom sessions and a weekend climbing session.
