AMGA SPI Course, April 6-8, Shawangunks



I just wrapped up an AMGA Single Pitch Instructor Course in the Shawangunks. Doug Ferguson of Mountain Skills Climbing Guide helped out with the instruction, and we had a great group of climbers and instructors from Brooklyn Boulders and Discover Outdoors. We spent two days at Peterskill and a day at the Mohonk Preserve. Good weather and a fun group made the three day course fly by.


Courses like the SPI Course are a good reminder that gaining skills is so much easier when you can learn from experienced instructors and guides. The school of hard knocks will get you there eventually, but learning to do things correctly from the start is the best way to build safe and efficient climbing habits.

If you're interested in taking an SPI Course or Assessment, shoot us a message or check our calendar for upcoming course dates.
