Event description
An ongoing series of climbing clinics to learn, practice, and refresh skills. Climbers of all experience levels are welcome.

About this event

Looking to learn some new skills, refresh some rusty ones, maintain your knowledge during the off season, or even just meet some fellow climbers within the community? Clinics at the Clinic might just be the perfect way for you to spend your dreary Vancouver winter evenings. VCA’s new series of climbing clinics kicks off this month. Be sure to come by and learn from industry professionals.

Session 1 (December 16)

  • How to coil your rope (rope backpacks, lap coils)
  • Bolt integrity, how do you trust bolts, bolt configurations

Session 2 (January 20)

  • Knots! (double fisherman’s, single fisherman’s, overhand on a bight, girth hitch, clove hitch, barrel knot)

Session 3 (February 17)

  • Top-rope anchors (clove-anchor, girth-anchor, master-point anchor, quickdraw anchor, quad-anchor)

Session 4 (March 17)

  • Cleaning top anchors (we will teach you one efficient, safe, and reliable method for all situations)

Session 5 (April 21)

  • How to clip a quickdraw (snap-method and pinch-method)
  • Equipment durability and lifespan (how long do dyneema slings last)

Practice equipment will be provided, but feel free to bring your own gear if you are uncomfortable sharing with others.

Attendees are expected to be vaccinated and to wear masks, as per the provincial health guidelines. We will be checking vaccine passports at the door.

Tickets are free for members & non-members. We ask that non-members consider becoming a member by visiting our website: www.vanclimbers.com.
