Itinerary:
Get back in the "groove" for summer crack climbing. This is unlike other climbing gyms. A unique opportunity to practice jamming vertical splitter cracks, and develop the technique. A very worthwhile exercise before heading climbing anywhere with Granite objectives. Climbing tape is essential on these cracks made from concrete. If you haven't climbed at UofC before, you will need to pass your safety/belay test first.
Required Items to Bring:
Harness Belay device Chalk climbing shoes

CLIMBING TAPE A high pain threshold Water bottle
