In News

CLIMB WITH THE SETTERS
Wed, March 20 // 7p – 8:30p // FREE w/ membership or day pass
Ever look at a climb and have zero idea what to do? Or find beta that you think might be vastly different from the “intended beta”? The EVO setting crew is here to chat about all things beta and boulders, though we’ve heard they might be convinced to hop on a rope too if you ask nicely. Climbers of all ages and ability levels welcome.

 MADALEINE SORKIN MENTAL MADNESS CLINIC
Tues, March 26 // 6:30p – 8:30p // $50 members, $75 not-yet-members
We spend hours in the gym training to get stronger in hopes of sending harder climbs, but how much of that training is mental? Improve your mental fitness and redpoint/onsight skills to perform at your edge of comfort (think: above your last piece or clip) in this clinic taught by big wall free climber and AMGA Rock Guide Madaleine Sorkin.
Clinic designed for climbers comfortable leading 5.9 or above indoors.

JEAN MOVIE SCREENING + Q+A
Thurs, March 28 // 7p – 8:30p // FREE
$10 suggested donation to nonprofit Love Your Brain – includes a Beer!
Join us to watch JEAN, a short film about local Boulder climber and pioneer for women in climbing, Jean Dempsey, whose life was changed forever by a rockfall accident in Yosemite 37 years ago. The film will be followed by a Q+A with Jean and preceded with information about Love Your Brain, a nonprofit that provides yoga for those affected by traumatic brain injury.

PRESENTATION: HOW TO TRAIN LIKE AN OLYMPIAN
Wed, April 3 // 6p – 7p // FREE w/ membership or day pass
Join Athletic Trainer ‘JT the AT’ for a Burdenko-style HIIT class at 7p
While the chances of one of us competing in the 2020 Olympics is pretty darn slim, that doesn’t mean we can’t learn from longtime Russian Olympic coach Igor Burdenko. Long story short: Igor came to the US in the 90’s (over 40 years into his incredibly successful coaching career) and shared his training secrets. Now EVO athletic trainer and fitness instructor ‘JT the AT’ is here to give us the inside scoop on how to adapt the “Burdenko method” to climbing training. Fun fact: JT was the Head Athletic Trainer for the US Olympic Luge Team before he moved to Colorado, so he knows a thing or two about working with Olympic athletes.
