    I’m excited for Climb Smart 2013! A self-rescue clinic would be really awesome.

    Great to hear Adra, we are excited too! Self-Rescue is a perennial favorite clinic topic, so you can count on
    that as a choice for 2013 Climb Smart; good on you for pursuing regular formal and semi-formal training to keep skills sharp. Registration will open soon so keep an eye out and make sure you are signed up for our e-news.

    What about “Fall Safe” for safe lead fall drills. I would like to stress how important it is for this class to have falling drills to develop muscle memory and habits.

    A feet-n-hands-on slab climbing course would be good as well.

    I got a few votes for anchor classes.

    “The Rock Warrior’s Way” was a super popular class that filled up at Red Rocks. I think they booked the author. I think it was about climbing mindset.

    Ladies only clinics are pretty popular.
