Arc’teryx is hosting the brand’s first digital consumer experience program through the launch of its 2020 Digital Climbing Academy. Designed to provide a similar experience to an in-person program, the upcoming Digital Climbing Academy will serve as a space for participants to celebrate mountain culture, connect with the global climbing community, and develop technical skills in a safe and responsible way. Initially, the program will take place in Squamish, B.C., Canada. The brand is offering a total of six online clinics this year, led by Arc’teryx athletes and ambassadors: Sport Climbing Progression with Alannah Yip, Crack Climbing with Will Stanhope, Alpine Running with Eric Carter, Backcountry Camping with Christine Feleki, Moving Faster in Alpine Terrain with Julia Niles, and Backcountry Cooking and Cocktails with Paul McSorley. All six clinics are designed to be completed indoors so participants can still stay active if being outdoors isn’t an available option. In addition, the digital program will also feature the film premieres of As Free As Can Be and Makatea, seminars and workshops hosted by the Climbing Grief Fund, and a diverse entertainment lineup. The Digital Climbing Academy will take place Aug. 24-28 and is free to access, with the exception of the clinics, which will cost $45 each, available online for three months. Clinic registration opens on Aug. 24.
