Here’s what participants are saying about Don’s clinics:

The day after the workshop I went out to Rocky Mountain National Park to boulder, and managed to send my second V6 ever and another V5. One week later I sent my first V7! I attribute my rapid improvement to your workshop. I just can’t thank you enough. – Emma M.

Don put on a well thought out clinic that provided clear goals, methods, and immediate practice. I’m leaving with more confidence and stronger climbing skills. – Beth H.

Don has some great tips and wisdom on becoming a stronger and smarter climber. – Craig H.

I have been going about training to break through my climbing plateau all the wrong way! The techniques Don taught me have totally changed that. – Marshall M.

I feel like I have a better understanding of the drills I can use during my warm up climbs to tackle my specific weaknesses. Climbing is so much more mental than I was giving it credit for. – Don L.

The workshop greatly enhanced my understanding of positioning my feet, executing moves without fear of falling, and how to conserve energy. Don broke these down and explain them to a relatively novice climber like me. – Sasha D.

Don’s clinic gave me several things to work on to improve my climbing. The clinic format took it from theory to actual practice. – David K.

Reading books is a great option, but it lacks  the power of coaching and immediate feedback. I can’t overstate the immediate impact of the coaching I got at the clinic. Thank you Don! – Chris F.

The techniques and activities in Don’s workshop can benefit any climber at any level. Don has a wealth of knowledge to share. I learned a great deal and plan to incorporate these exercises into my training. – Celine M.
