LEVEL 2:  June 25th – 27th, 2018; Inner Peaks; Charlotte, NC 

This Level 2 clinic will be instructed by Level 5 Chief Routesetter, Luke Bertelsen.  Participation is capped at 12 and we expect many applications, so please only apply if you have Level 1 certification, significant USAC competition routesetting experience, Chief Routesetter experience, other related qualifications, and a sincere interest in setting for USAC Championship level competitions in the future.  Applicants who have exceptional Championship level (Regional/Divisional) competition routesetting experience and Chief Routesetter experience will take precedence, and we will select participants also considering the desire to have routesetters from diverse USAC regions.  

The Level 2 clinic is a significantly higher level than the Level 1 Clinic, where our goal is to not only instruct and guide routesetters in the methodology and practices of routesetting for USA Climbing events, but to also assess your performance and qualification to set for Championship level competition events in the future.  Applicants are expected to be able to work V7 and 5.12.  This clinic is three full days and the cost is $400.00.  A $55 USAC Routesetter Membership is also mandatory, and if you are accepted into the clinic but are not already a member, you may also purchase the membership online while registering.  Successful participants in the clinic will receive Level 2 Certification.
