The Adaptive Climbing Initiative is an invitation to all of us to rethink what is possible.
Paradox Sports is the national leader in adaptive climbing and we are offering a new program format – outdoors! The Adaptive Climbing Initiative Course is intended for climbing facilitators, guides and instructors who seek to help people of all abilities climb.
This new Outdoor Adaptive Climbing Initiative Course at Staunton State Park is designed to prepare leaders in the climbing industry with the “tool-kit” necessary to accommodate climbers of any and all abilities in their programs or guide schools. This comprehensive training program will cover the diversity of disability, etiquette, health concerns, technical systems for adaptation, and site and risk management in a single pitch outdoor environment. The expert anecdotes and lessons provided serve adaptive athletes, climbing wall instructors, outdoor guides, physical therapists, and well-being advocates of all types.
Spaces are limited. Registration is required.
