BOEALPS is offering the first ever gear seminar in February! This seminar will go over all the hardware required for climbing in the BCC class and beyond. Yes, the BCC already has a gear lecture. But due to time constraints it can’t be very interactive and hands-on. In this class we’ll do things like look at carabiners up close and compare the gate actions without a store employee hovering. We’ll go over all the possible features (and pros/cons) of a harness, helmet, belay device, and more. We’ll also show different ways to mark your gear. You can even bring in your own equipment and we can discuss how it’ll work for the class.
Whether you’ve never worn a harness before or if you already climb in the gym, this class will have something for you. There will also be handouts that will help you along your gear journey —- so don’t worry about being overloaded.
