The Warriors Way Falling Clinic is for sport climbing leaders interested in developing focus, clarity and more enjoyable, successful leading. Falling commitment addresses falling directly to help sport climbers improve commitment. We do progressive falling practice – taking small falls, and increasing distance as you are comfortable – followed by movement, breathing, resting, and body/mind awareness exercises. Finally, students apply everything to lead a goal route. Students leave understanding how to take appropriate risks leading sport climbing routes and how to commit to those risks.

The Trad Mental Camps is for trad climbing leaders who want to be more comfortable falling and pushing their abilities while lead climbing. This two-day trad climbing course specifically targets developing better mental focus for leading traditional climbing routes. To accomplish this, we need to develop trust in our gear, and in our jamming ability. We’ll develop this trust by falling on gear, moving continuously when jamming, quick and precise gear placement, and improving mental focus through application of the Warrior’s Way principles. You’ll leave knowing how to take appropriate risks on trad routes with improved mental focus.
