Indian Creek is second to none when it comes to crack climbing. The Indian Creek Crack Clinic is an intensive group program designed to give participants the tools and confidence for climbing cracks using proper technique. This is equally an opportunity for experienced climbers to sharpen their crack climbing and for inexperienced 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”! In the past, a good venue for this was Supercrack buttress.
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 continue climbing in Indian 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.
