The team from J.L. Haneke Financial & Insurance Services Inc. participated in a rock-climbing lesson at Vail Athletic Club on April 20. Thanks to the efforts of Larry Moore, we were connected with an instructor, Ryan, at the climbing wall to “learn the ropes.” We learned how to get harnessed, tie our knots, do safety checks, climb and belay. After getting some of the basics down, Ryan helped us build trust in our teammates by learning to belay one another while in a very safe environment. We were able to try more technical climbs without the concern of falling. The day was a huge success, with a fun time had by all.
