AMC May Member Meeting:

Unu Tran, P.T. presents Healthy Shoulders for Climbers


May 25, 2022

Wednesday, 7 p.m.


As climbers, shoulder injuries tend to be a common injury we see. This is why it is SO important to maintain strength and mobility. Dr Q (Unu Tran, PT) has been seeing and treating a lot of rock climbers recently with shoulder injuries. He will share and teach 3 secrets to optimal shoulder health for rock climbers. Join us for this presentation of injury prevention from Unu Tran. Tran graduated from a Doctor of Physical Therapy program in 2015 and completed fellowship training not too long after.

Tran owns a physical therapy practice out of Austin, TX specializing in rock climbing injuries. His goal is to help climbers before they get injured. His practice helps climbers overcome pain, by looking at your body as a whole and movement patterns, this helps solve a lot of the underlying issues that may have been holding you back in climbing.

AMC Schools

The Arizona Mountaineering Club has been teaching outdoor rock climbing for over 50 years. As an all-volunteer organization, AMC is able to offer the most comprehensive training at a very low cost to AMC members.  For complete course details and the upcoming schedule, please see our Schools page at

Basic Outdoor Rock Climbing - This rock school is for new climbers or anyone who learned from friends, but wants to fill in knowledge gaps and learn the current Best Practices in rock climbing and self-rescue basics over the course of 4 evenings and 3 all-day weekend sessions.

Anchors - This course is the next step for AMC Outdoor Rock Climbing grads. We will teach you how to safely and efficiently build trad and sport anchors for all aspects of climbing.  Combined with the skills learned in the Outdoor Rock Climbing School, you will have the complete skill set required for safe top-rope climbing.

Lead - Is it time to move to the sharp end of the rope?  This is an advanced climbing class.  All aspects of lead climbing will be addressed with a strong emphasis on multi-pitch trad climbing.  Topics include gear (ropes and pro), the dynamics of lead falls, solid gear placement, rope management, anchors, and the mental as well as physical aspects of sport and trad leading. This class is for every competent climber. Even if you do not plan on leading, you will learn and understand the dynamics of lead climbing, and it will make you a more knowledgeable and capable climber and second.

Basic Canyoneering - A recent addition to the AMC training curriculum, this course is intended for those who have never been canyoneering along with those wanting to refresh their understanding of the many core concepts. The basics are a critical starting point for every responsible individual entering the canyons.

Mountaineering - The AMC provides an excellent opportunity to network with fellow members with significant alpine skills and experience.  In addition to the opportunity to share and learn with fellow members, the AMC continues to develop partnerships with noted guide services for top-notch professional training and skills development.
