Indian Creek, Utah
Chicks Rock! Climbing Course – 2014 dates to come!
Who: Open to women who can climb 5.9 on rock on top rope.
What: Crack Climbing in Indian Creek Recreation Area, Utah. This clinic will focus on techniques to climb finger cracks, hand cracks, fist cracks, and off-widths. This clinic is being provided in partnership with Moab Desert Adventures.
This is a unique clinic because it is self-contained and remote, located in the heart of Indian Creek near Canyonlands National Park. Once you get here, it is too far to any hotels so you will want to camp and stay with the group. We will have a base camp manager who will cook all of your meals so you can roll in hungry from climbing and not worry about a thing. The camaraderie of hanging out together in the desert is a highlight of this clinic. Please note that cell in internet service is spotty an inconsistent so plan to be “off line” during your stay.
Three-day intensive clinic
Chicks would like to invite you to climb with us this spring in the beautiful desert of southwest Utah. What better place to dedicate time to honing your crack climbing skills than in the mecca at Indian Creek. The beautiful Windgate sandstone cliffs offer the perfect place to practice hand jams, fists, chicken wings and finger locks. Our experienced Girly Guides want you to come play in their backyard so they can teach you the skills and techniques to climb cracks of all sizes.
The clinic is in early May when the days are long and warm. We will provide a fun, safe and encouraging environment for you to hone your new skills. At Chicks Rock!, you can expect to learn the secrets of crack climbing, connect with awesome women and have an exhilarating experience. You will discover why the Chicks experience is so much more than climbing!
Optional Tower Day
Stay a day longer to climb a classic desert tower. This is your chance to take the skills and techniques that you have learned during the three-day intensive and apply them to this unique experience. This day is open to all clinic participants and is on a first-come-first service basis. No prior experience is necessary. Take advantage of a 2-to-1 ratio with the Girly Guides!
