  • Planet Granite 1405 Northwest 14th Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

You have been climbing rock for a while but feel as though you have hit a plateau and want to push to the next level. This class will teach you the secrets to efficient movement as well as some specific training tips. We’ll break down your moves into micro movements to help you understand what muscle groups are used for certain moves. Video will be used for you to see your body position as you climb. A series of advance moves will be set up and the movement broken down in isolation, to help you better understand the moves. This will help you learn your weaknesses and how you can work on them.
