Indian Creek is the world’s most famous crack climbing venue for good reason and our Indian Creek Crack Clinic is an intensive 3 day program designed to give participants the tools and confidence for climbing cracks using proper technique. This is both an opportunity for experienced climbers to sharpen their crack climbing and for less experienced climbers to find their jam.
$650 per person
We jump right into things. Start the day by getting acquainted with a #2 hand crack. After the initial try, we’ll discuss making tape gloves, and learn proper techniques for hand and foot jams. Participants will spend the better half of the day “finding their jam”! We have found Supercrack Buttress to be a good venue for this day.
This day is generally spent 1 of 2 different ways depending on the group:
The first option is driving to Moab in search of moderate climbing. This offers a break from splitters and allows students to practice skills ranging from single pitch rescue to placing trad gear, learning to lead, etc.
The second option is to continue climbing in Indian Creek. It is still possible to cover any additional technical topics in the Creek.
This will be the day to review and practice skills learned from previous days. We will climb at a wall that allows participants to practice a variety of sizes, giving the option to learn some off-width technique if chosen.

This is a group enrollment program. The maximum guest to guide ratio is 3:1 with a maximum group size of 6 climbers and 2 guides.
Meeting time and place vary with each group and the time of year. The guides will have a camp site the evening before the start of the course for those coming in early. It is always possible to meet the first morning of the course as well.
We provide transportation from Moab if needed or meet groups with their own car at Indian Creek.
