Gear Seminar

»Posted on Feb 13, 2013

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.


Date: February 21st, 2013 @ 7:00 PM

Location: Boeing 2-22 Building

Another WRFA Certification Class?

»Posted on Dec 14, 2012

BOEALPS is considering offering another WRFA class in order to make sure everyone has a current certification before our classes start. We are trying to gauge interest in another class if it was offered before the BCC started. Please vote below to let us know if you would be interested. If we get enough positive responses, we will do our best to bring another class online in the spring.

Reminder: In order to be an instructor in a BOEALPS class, you must have a WRFA / MOFA certification.
