Keene Valley is home to the greatest concentration of climbs in the Adirondacks.  Chicks Climbing is proud to pack all of this amazing rock into our short course format.  Hone your climbing techniques, rope skills, anchor safety, and much more!

The ‘Dacks” offers a wide variety of climbing.  It is known for some of the finest traditional rock climbing available today.  There are well over 250 climbing areas in the Adirondacks, all of which deal a very unique experience from the next.  Areas such as Keene Valley, where our event takes place, offers the largest variety of climbing in the Dacks.  Most of the rock in the Dacks is anorthosite; it’s very coarse, hard rock and is often mistaken for granite, but is actually the same rock found on the moon.

Women of all abilities from beginner to advanced are welcome.  This clinic offers a 4 -to- 1 ratio with some of the best guides the region has to offer.

Includes:

*3 days guided climbing

*4 -to- 1 ratio

*Demo climbing gear

*3 dinners

*T-shirt

*Welcome packet

A special thanks to Cloudsplitter Mountain Guides who, in partnership, makes our clinics possible.
