Power Company Workshops

Effecitve Body Tension $30Purchase required to enroll


While climbing is a skill based sport, and movement quality is perhaps the most important aspect, a structured practice to improve technique remains elusive.

Power Company Climbing borrowed from their combined history with gymnastics, strength training, and deliberate practice to tackle one of the most important movement skills for climbers: Body Tension. More than simply core strength, this workshop is an exploration of how to develop, practice, and effectively apply tension through the entire body, to both static and explosive movement.

Participants will learn a progression of on the wall drills that can be applied and scaled for any level of climber, and walk away with tools they can use in every session, from beginner to V14 and beyond.

(Limited to 15 participants)

Group Session Free

Join Power Company coaches Kris Hampton and Nathan Drolet for a few informal hours of bouldering and training talk. Both have climbed 5.14 and double digit boulders, and will be here to not only session with you and offer advice, but to answer questions about your training (and theirs), how to tactically approach that nemesis project, or anything else related to getting better at climbing that you've been wondering about.

Bring your friends, your questions, and your psyche!

Better Sport Climbing $50Purchase required to enroll

Sport climbing is as much about tactics and efficiency as it is about strength and endurance. Whether you prefer onsighting, redpointing, or doing tons of pitches, you can benefit from learning the tricks and tactics that the pros use.

Join Power Company coaches Kris Hampton and Nathan Drolet for this 3 hour workshop that explores the tactics and techniques you can use to get more out of your gym sessions, and be better prepared for the real thing. We'll talk about how to add an element of deliberate practice into your gym sessions, as well as drills that can help you break through your plateau.

(Limited to 14 participants)

Prerequisite: Certified by RoKC to lead climb and lead belay.
