Craig De Martino Presentation with Adaptive Adventure

At the Bivy | October 15 | 6:00- 7:00 pm

Craig De Martino has been an adaptive climber for 15 years. He will share his experience in teaching trauma survivors and anyone with a physical disability how to be a climber. Craig lost his leg in a climbing accident in 2002 and has used the accident to reshape his entire life. He will explain the “club” model he uses to get adaptive climbers integrated into the climbing culture, and how people with disabilities can thrive in that culture. 

Free Admission (presentation only)

Whetstone will donate 50% of the day passes sold that day. Come to support Adaptive Adventure.


Advanced Lead Class Catching & Falling

October 17 | 6:30- 8:30 PM

This course is designed to build confidence when taking and catching lead falls. Exercises will help climbers and belayers: increase awareness of the forces involved in a fall, train the mind and body to be comfortable with falling, and cultivate the belayer’s ability to offer a soft and consistent catch.

Mobile Strenght Workout

Fitness | October 21 | 5:30-6:20 pm

“Are you flexible, or are you mobile? What’s the difference? Flexibility is a test of how far your tissue can stretch passively, or without a load placed on the joint. It is a good indicator of tissue health. Mobility is how far your tissue can stretch under a load and how well you can control that load at the joint through a large range of motion. It is a good indicator of athleticism, risk for future injury, and longevity of the joint itself.

Come join Matt Mosebar, Performance Coach, for a small group workout that will concentrate on mobility.
