Clinic List for Rumney Rendezvous 2017:


Zen and the Art of Climbing- Most climbers can appreciate the fact that a huge portion of the climbing game happens in our heads. In this clinic Lee Hansche will share some philosophies and techniques that will help you improve your mental game on the rocks.


Strength and Mobility Balance for Climbers- Most of us are either plenty strong but less flexible or we can put our leg over our heads but have trouble engaging the necessary muscles once we get there. Certified Exercise Physiologist and long time climber Nicole Hansche will teach us how we can improve the balance between these things and make some climbing gains!
