About this ATS Workshop

This workshop is a retrospective on retrogrades! Get ready to challenge your vertical brain as we reverse and invert our wraps and our way of thinking about them! A portion of this workshop will explore the fascinating world of Indian rope mallakhamb, including unique wraps, toe climb theory and how various hand grips (and toe grips!) are related and connected. Previous experience with toe climbs is not required, and modified toe-friendly variations will also be offered, as well as starting points for training your toes!


$40 ($50 for non-ATS participants)
