Ever wonder what the difference between a tri-cam and a camalot is? Or perhaps why you would ever use an oval carabiner instead of a more modern asymmetric D? Come join us for an in-depth review of the multitude of equipment that is available to the modern climber. Topics discussed will include ropes, web goods, carabiners, and traditional climbing protection devices (active, passive, and more esoteric devices). This is a must attend seminar if you are thinking of purchasing or asking for climbing equipment as a gift in the near future. A formal outline will be provided that you can take notes on during the presentation. There will be time for Q&A throughout the seminar.
The clinic will be held upstairs at Appalachian Outfitters near the climbing section. There is a $30 participation fee for this 3-hour long seminar.
