Hooray for the Adult Climbing Team!
By Adult Team Member Alissa McCluskey

Has joining the Adult Climbing Team ever crossed your mind? If the idea hasn’t, it should! At any level beginner or expert, the Adult Team will make you a better climber. With expert instruction from the gym’s lead coach, Andy Davis, you will become a stronger climber and within weeks of practice you will be able to send your projects.

How do I know? I have been on the team and have made vast improvements with my technique and stamina. I have been able to send my projects in a matter of weeks and feel 100% confident on them. I have gone from struggling on low 5.10s to leading high 5.11s.

I encourage everyone who wants to be a better climber to give Adult Climbing team a chance. I know you’ll see a difference! - Alissa McCluskey
