YOUR DAY INCLUDES

All our clients are supplied with rock climbing gear (you get our pair of climbing shoes, harness and all the other technical equipment you will need.)

The full day starts at 9:00 am and will end between 3:00 pm and 6 pm, depending on your endurance.  (half day start times, 8-12, 1230-430, 430-830).  All you must bring are clothes that provide maximum mobility, a bagged lunch, a water bottle, a comfortable pair of sneakers, and a healthy dose of enthusiasm and motivation.  Our goal for the day is to take you on many different climbs and turn you into a safe and good climber.

BEGINNER CLASSES

If you’re just getting started, we will take an intensive look at the mechanics and safety procedures of climbing; knots, anchors, belays, protection, rope handling, and rappelling.  We will then set up a short gradual climb which will give you a chance to use all your knowledge, technique and safety on a real cliff.  Then we’ll develop a teaching plan custom tailored for you or your group.

ADVANCED CLASSES

If you already had some climbing experience, we will evaluate your current level and work with you to improve your technique and safety skills.  Many of our clients are intermediate climbers trying to push their maximum grade levels higher. Our experienced guides specialize in advancing your climbing level beyond your present limits.
