THE WARRIOR'S WAY:

FALLING & COMMITMENT OUTDOOR SPORT CAMP
1/2
WHAT IS THE WARRIOR'S WAY?

At the heart of The Warrior's Way® method is learning how to commit your attention effectively in the moment and on the task. There are many tasks in climbing, but when you boil it down there are simply two: climbing and resting. Learning how to separate these two tasks is what The Warrior's Way® method is all about.

 

Over the last 15 years, NRMG has worked with The Warrior's Way® founder, Arno Ilgner, who has developed a curriculum to teach climbers like yourself how to overcome their fears. 

FALLING & COMMITMENT OUTDOOR SPORT CAMP 

Being effective in climbing requires us to understand the consequences of our decisions and actions. In climbing the main consequence is falling. By understanding how to fall we diminish the chance of injury and allow us to focus attention effectively on climbing. In this 2-day camp, you will learn how to commit to climbing, deal with falling, and take appropriate risks.

 

You'll learn to:

-Fall safely

-Give a dynamic (cushioned) belay

-Break a climb into smaller risk events

-Assess risks effectively

-Distinguish between no- and yes-fall zones

-Engage no- and yes-fall zones appropriately

-Make appropriate risk decisions

-Improve body and mind awareness

-Rest effectively

-Improve breathing

-Create flow and momentum

-Deal with climbing stress

-Commit more deliberately

-Reduce fear

 

Pre-Requisite Experience:

-Minimum 6 months of climbing experience

-Climb a minimum of 5.9 in the gym without falling

-Being able to lead climb is not required, however, if students want to lead during the clinic they should get lead certified at their local climbing gym PRIOR to the clinic date.

 

Suggested Preparation:

Read Espresso Lessons with emphasis on Preparation and Action Chapters, and the exercises in the Appendix for these chapters.

 

Equipment:

Bring usual climbing equipment plus rope and draws (if you have these). A helmet is also required.
