Prerequisites for clinic:
Its helpful if youve read the The Rock Warriors Way or Espresso Lessons, but it isnt absolutely necessary. You can email Arno (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a pdf handout to become familiar with the Warriors Way® material.
The clinic seems to be best for those who have hit a plateau, experience frustration, fear, loss of motivation, or other mental fitness issues.
You DO need to know the fundamentals of knots, belaying, and basic climbing skills.
You DO NOT need to be able to lead to take the clinic.
Harness, shoes, belay device, and a helmet (if you want to wear one). The gym usually provides lead ropes and sometimes helmets.
