Private Lessons

Private Lessons with Felipe

Felipe’s time climbing began about 6 years ago, when his brother started taking him to climb along in gyms and outdoors at the local Crags. Between bouldering and sport climbing, Felipe’s time climbing has helped him sharpen his physical and mental skills, to the point when he realized what he really wanted to do was teach folks those same skills and help them fall in love with climbing the way he had. Since Febuary of 2022, Felipe has been the resident instructor at the Central Location for Bouldering basics classes, and later aquired his Climing Wall Instructor certification which has helped him level up his teaching abilities. Felipe is comfortable and experienced coaching/teaching any level of bouldering from VB(very beginner)-V10, and feels the same way about coaching any sport climbing up to 5.11d. All climbers are welcome in Felipes classes(/groups) or one-on-ones, and he loves working with climbers to help them achieve their specific goals, while keeping the focus on inclusivity and fun.

Private Lessons with Dan Bailey

Dan has been climbing for over five years now after getting his start at Baylor University. Though he began primarily interested in bouldering, he soon after moved to ropes and fell even deeper in love with the sport. In August 2021, he got his Climbing Wall Instructor certification and discovered a whole new aspect of climbing that he loves with equal alacrity: teaching. From people who only just learned what bouldering is to solid 5.10 climbers looking to boost their top rope or lead confidence, Dan teaches the need to know fundamentals to get someone started or the subtler techniques to help a strong climber overcome their plateau. He’s comfortable with one-on-one teaching and coaching, or equipping small groups with the instruction they need to realize their climbing ambitions.

Private Lessons with Eric

Eric started climbing in 2007, as a member of a competitive climbing team. He has experience bouldering at several of the world’s most renowned outdoor destinations. He has been a professional routesetter for five years, the last two of which have been at Crux. For climbers who are looking to further their ability to understand and execute technical climbing at a high level, Eric’s coaching would be very appropriate.

Private Lessons with Dakota

I started climbing in 2020 and instantly fell in love with it. I fell in love with learning all the techniques and the mental battle that comes with projecting a boulder or sport route. I am a big proponent of technique is just as if not more important. I started coaching with the rec team and wanted to move to smaller groups and one on one to really help climbers hone in their skills and capabilities. From bouldering to sport climbing I am committed to helping you achieve any goals you have in mind. Whether it is getting your first v0 or v7, or if it’s your first 5.11 or your first time getting on the ropes I am here to assist with it all!
