ABOUT THIS TRIP

Ten Sleep boasts spectacular mountain views with creature comforts just minutes away at the Ten Sleep Rock Ranch campground. Limestone pockets and edges provide fluid climbing sequences facilitating movement lessons created by nature.

This clinic is for all levels of sport climbers. We will lay the foundation of solid climbing partnerships with rope work, communication and climbing movement. Ensuring everyone feels confident in their abilities to push boundaries through intentional commitment in the sport climbing realms are the main objectives throughout the clinic. Whether top roping, mock leading or leading, participants will be able to grow as sport climbers.

 

IRIS guides are EXCELLENT educators; skilled at communicating and coaching, great at taking a big concept and breaking it into digestible steps, and dedicated to facilitating an educational environment where participants can absorb and apply the information.

 

The folks you’ll climb with will become fast friends. A two day program provides time to make progress on your limestone climbing, build new belaytionships, and enjoy a relaxing weekend of camping. Join us!
