Mind Power Clinic for Women with Josie McKee
Climbing is such an engaging activity because it is a holistic challenge, for all of us, at any levels, in many ways. A significant portion of climbing success boils down to our mental processes, yet training for many climbers only engages the physical. In Mind Power, we focus on the process of working with our minds and engaging with our strengths and limitations. Sending a climb becomes a byproduct of the process. We provide a toolbox to build awareness in the mind and body and put these tools into practice in every part of the climbing process, from warm-ups to projects, on lead and even on the ground. We help you create confident flow in your climbing. We practice enjoying the process, understanding our fears and striving for personal improvement, both on and off the wall.
• Discussion of mental tactics.
• Practical application of skills on the wall.
• Planning personal strategies for continued development in your climbing future.
Join other rad women for a clinic on mental training for climbers on Wednesday, April 10th from 6:00-9:00 pm with Pacific Edge & YOSAR alumna Josie McKee. All levels welcome, 12 participants maximum. $50 Members | $55 Guests.
Enlivened by movement, inspired by wild places, and curious to see what's possible, Josie finds herself continuously drawn to the adventure, challenge and presence of mind that only climbing can provide. As a professional climber with over 20 years of experience (starting at Pacific Edge!), Josie has put up first ascents around the globe, holds big wall and alpine speed records and has done expeditions in the US, Patagonia, Mexico and the Himalaya. She has worked on the elite Yosemite National Park Search and Rescue team (YOSAR), guided around the US and internationally, and currently teaches wilderness medicine and climbing workshops nationwide. Through climbing and rescue work, Josie has developed an extensive skill set. Along with her knowledge of technical systems, she has learned to thrive under intense mental and physical stress. Josie’s goal as a member of the climbing community is to inspire and educate others to meet their own physical, mental and technical challenges.
