Rifle, CO: August 10-12, 2018

Rifle Mountain Park, located outside of Rifle Colorado, is climbers dream come true. The two-mile long canyon is lined with perfect limestone cliffs. This natural playground is famed for its long steep physically demanding routes. However, recent efforts have been made to establish stellar moderate routes. With more than three hundred routes and over twenty separate cliffs, Rifle provides a wealth of climbing that offers something for everyone.

Rifle Canyon is easily accessible from Denver or Salt Lake. The park offers the entire climbing experience all in one place. A river cuts the canyon and feeds lush habitat below walls that are abundant with climbs. The group campsite will provide beautiful peaceful camping and is within walking distance to most of the climbing. Catered meals will also be provided at the campsite. The goal of this clinic is to expand your ability and learn advanced techniques to break into the higher grades. Learn to project climbs, fall safely, and explore skills such as knee bars, moving using opposition and much more. All of this together makes the clinic in Rifle justifiably a must seize the opportunity.
