Not only is Will Stanhope going to be presenting at this year’s Kootenay Climbing Festival, we’re also going to be offering climbing clinics the following day! On Sunday, September 24, TAWKROC is offering 3 rock climbing clinics, a Kid’s Climbing 1/2 Day and a Bouldering Tour. Those interested can sign up below. You will receive a reply about how to pay once your application has been received. Spots in the clinics are doled out on a first-paid-first-served basis. Please note, you must be a TAWKROC member in order to register for the 3 clinics and the Kid’s climbing 1/2 day. (Memberships are only $10 a year and you can purchase one here.) Also, there are no refunds if you are unable to attend the clinic. (Refunds will be given out, however, should a clinic have to be cancelled due to weather or an instructor issue.)
