Summer 2011 Climbing Clinics for Women, Men and crazy people who want to climb big walls!

I've spent the past few days clipping bolts in the sun in Red Rocks, enjoying a brief but amazing respite from winter. All this warm rock has got me thinking about how much I love climbing and how psyched I am for the coming summer of guiding and climbing in Squamish!

Here's my clinic list for the summer. If you are interested in a day of private instruction or guiding, or would like to sign up for one of these clinics, please contact me at: jasmincaton@gmail.com.

Gear placement, anchor building, multipitch station management and much more!

Sure would love to come up for a clinic or 2 but I may be headed for surgery for that bum shoulder I had during last summer's crack clinic. :(
Hopefully that won't waste my entire summer!
