Over the years I have seen the sport of climbing undergo many changes. Advances in equipment continue to keep our sport moving forward allowing climbers to test their limits ever so much further. This is vital and necessary as our sport evolves. With changes in the sport we must never lose touch with why we started to climb in the first place. We must never lose the deep, personal satisfactions that our sport has and continues to give us.
I realized many years ago that a day spent climbing outside whether it is at a local crag or in the mountains was a lot more than moving your hands and feet and trying to find holds. It’s about the people we are with, the relationships that develop, and the camaraderie of being attached to a rope, going through a shared experience that demands absolute trust and 100 percent “presence”. The more I climb, the more I realize it’s as much about the relationships between climbers as it is about climbing. Climbing is more than just a sport. It is an approach to life.
I take pride in knowing that KMAC is an industry leader for climbing instruction. KMAC youth camps are known for their in depth instructional format to learn the art of climbing and they continue to be one of the most highly respected programs for youth.
I look forward to helping you find a course or program that will meet and exceed your expectations.
