Routesetting Seminar 2020

19. September 2020 | Karma Climbing Fontainebleau

Learn route-setting from the best in the industry: climbing and setting legend Jacky Godoffe and competition setter and gym owner Nataleigh Bell.


This full-day seminar is dedicated to both experienced and novice setters wanting to advance their craft and fuel their creativity. Through sharing their knowledge and creative drills, Jacky and Nat will aim at increasing all participant’s confidence and helping them find their own voice as setters.


Themes covered will include:

  • commercial setting vs. competition setting

  • teamwork, trust and creating a good working environment

  • working outside of your comfort zone

  • delivering quality on a bad day

  • scrapping a bad idea and starting over

  • sources of inspiration

The seminar will take place at the French National Team area in Karma Climbing Fontainebleau. The group is capped at twelve participants.


Although the seminar is open to all levels, we recommend that the participants have a basic knowledge of route-setting technical skills (drills and bolts) as well as being able to climb at least around 6C/V5.

We encourage the seminar participants to apply to become a Festival Mentor.
