Starting April we will be adding a climbing related clinic to our free gym climbing nights that take place on Wednesday at RJF West.  The clinic will start at 7pm and go to roughly 8:30 or 9:00 (so you can climb after).  You will still be able to utilize the free admission.  Clinic will be first come first serve, if the number of participants is capped.  We’ll meet in the North-East corner of RJF, far end of the auto-belays beside the crack climb.  The clinic’s topic will be posted on the schedule in advance.  Topic’s will range from technical, gear, training, and technique.  All are encouraged to attend the clinics but some clinics may have prerequisites for you to fully participate in the skill.  The purpose of the clinic isn’t meant to replace a course but to provide a taster, introduction, refresher, training, or practice for members.  Note that learning how to top rope or lead belay will never be a topic, RJF has courses that address these skills.  If you would like to suggest a topic or run one of the clinics, please contact Urban Activities at urban@accedmonton.ca .  For starters, April 4th climbing knots, April 11th building outdoor anchors, April 18th cleaning anchors, and April 25th belaying a second.  Check the schedule for a more in-depth description.
