Climbing Classes

Intro to Climbing – Beginners (14yrs+)

Our Intro to Climbing class will help you learn the basic skills you need to climb on a rope. You will learn the climbing basics: grading systems, beginning technique, how to fit a harness properly, how to tie in, and how to belay. To learn how to belay, you will need a partner, so it may be a fun experience to share with a friend or family member. Our instruction will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to pass a belay test, after which you will be free to climb for as long as you’d like.

Gym-to-Crag Program

For people who started climbing in a gym but are interested in learning the skills and etiquette required to climb outside, the transition can feel slow, treacherous, and difficult to navigate.

We help climbers make that transition through a series of hands-on clinics in our facility, known as the Gym-to-Crag Program.

Clinics are $20 per session and are taught by our in-house AMGA certified professional climbing guide, Ryan Howes.

*Day pass not included in the cost of the class.

Private Instruction

There is no better way to improve one’s climbing ability than working one-on-one with an experienced climbing coach. Whether you want just to come in for a single session performance diagnosis, or would like to enroll in one of our many topic-specialized sessions, we have offerings that best fit your needs.
