    Students are invited to take part in an introductory course to indoor climbing on a block (bouldering) wall! The course will cover basics and is great even for beginners who are unfamiliar with basic climbing concepts. The main objective is to help students understand the fundamentals of climbing and basic technique on an indoor artificial structure. At the end of the course, participants will learn about various climbing opportunities in Ticino so they can continue practicing independently. Please note that this is a two part course - one session is offered on December 3, and the second half will take place on December 10. Students may sign up with a CHF 20 non-refundable deposit at the OSL Front Desk by 23:59 on Wednesday, November 28. Participants will meet at Airone at 18:00 on both dates and will have a ride to the Evolution Climbing Center in Taverne.
