Sharp End – Build Confidence, Embrace Unknown
Gabriel Mazur, IFMGA and Jarad Stiles, AMGA certified guide will take you on a journey of confidence in trad climbing. 3 days of intensive workshop. Embrace The Sharp End
We are offering structured work with three types of fear. The unknown, the known and the fear of failure. In climbing you could loosely connect those to on-sight, scary redpoint, and climbing in a limelight.
The skills from this workshop will be equally applicable in your climbing and your day to day life.
We will use fall practice and belayer training as the main vehicle for building up confidence. All the practice will be on your own placements based on our guidance. Video analysis will be used to fine tune your way of progressing on the wall.
Who are you?
You are trad climber that wants to climb with confidence and trust when above your own placements. You want to expand the pool of strategies to approach different climbs and feel invigorated rather than drained by climbing on a Sharp End.
