Armadilo Boulders is proud to be bringing Nate Drolet from Power Company Climbing to the gym for a series of climbing clinics designed to accelerate your climbing progression. Power Company Climbing is a national leader in climbing training - hosting clinics all over the world, and offering online coaching to climbers of all abilities.

Climbing since 2005, Nate is one of the most mindful movers you’ll ever see. He’s never considered himself a naturally strong climber, but has overcome that through technique, mindset, tactics, and dedicated strength training. With ascents of 5.14 and V12, he hopes to impart those lessons to other climbers.

The clinics will be small groups, allowing Nate to observe each climber on the wall, identifying strengths and weaknesses, and tailoring advice for each climber. The goal for each session is for climbers to learn tactics, skills and drills they can utilize to keep progressing as a climber.

7 PM - BOULDER BETTER

Boulder Better is a 2.5-3 hour workshop that consists of about 30 minutes of class time and 90-120 minutes of climbing, followed by a Q and A session. During class, we give a presentation that focuses on the principles we will be stressing in the gym. Once in the gym, we work with each person, suggesting drills to do and changes that they can make to their climbing, based on what we see while they are on the wall. This isn’t a physical “training” session, but an exploration into a better approach, tactics, and practice, and how that can affect your progression, whether it’s for sport climbing or bouldering.

9 AM - APPLIED BODY TENSION

Our most popular workshop, Applied Body Tension is a 2.5-3 hour workshop that consists of about 30 minutes of class time and 90-120 minutes of climbing, followed by a Q and A session. During class, we give a presentation that focuses on why a deliberate practice is important, and the basics of the system of drills that we’ve developed. Drills that are intended to put a focus on body tension, and how to apply core strength to the climbing wall. Once in the gym, we take the climbers through our entire system, and try to indentify where within the system their time will be best spent.
