ZAC Hosts Annual Climbing Guides Meeting in November

On Saturday, November 5th, the Professional Climbing Guides Institute will hold their annual BBQ here in Springdale. There will be food, clinics, prizes, and a much anticipated “Unimog vs. Dynometer” challenge. We also expect to have a bunch of guides and climber-types sitting around sharing stories, debating the finer points of anchoring, rigging, teaching, and climbing, and generally dorking out in the climbing realm. We’re planning on having a lot of fun, and everyone is welcome to stop in for part or all of the festivities.

The Essentials
When: Saturday, November 5th, 1:00 PM
Where: Springdale Town Park (next to the Springdale Community Center, 126 Lion Blvd, Springdale, UT)
Schedule:

1:00 PM – Alternative anchoring & equalizing clinic with PCGI Mentor, Seth Zaharias
3:30 PM – “Where Climbers Loose Speed” clinic with PCGI Mentor, Alan Jolley
5:30 PM – Dynometer meets Unimog for a fun load testing & breaking climbing gear experience, PRIZES & BBQ!
