Rock Climbing 101

If you’ve never rock climbed, or have been climbing indoors at a rock gym, this class is for you. We’ll go over the fundamentals of climbing and focus on giving you the knowledge to become a skilled and confident rock climber. You’ll learn about the relevant equipment, knots and terminology, and then we’ll move right into belaying, body position, footwork and working around the climbing site.


The bulk of the day is spent putting these new skills to use on the cliff, with each climber able to get in a few climbs and descents. You will come away knowing what it is like to be a fully engaged and responsible member of a climbing party, and with a good measure of actual climbing time on the rock.

*Climbers will be outfitted with all technical equipment for the day. You are welcome to bring your own equipment but it will be subject to approval by your guide. Equipment provided includes harness, helmet, and climbing hardware. Climbers will be expected to arrive dressed appropriately for the weather and provide their own lunches for the day.

Rock Climbing Anchors - Toprope Basics

When it is time to start heading out on your own, you’ll want to hit this course first. We’ll take your knowledge and experience on the rock and fine-tune it to address the myriad issues that come with establishing toprope systems. You’ll learn how to assess a site for climbing and anchoring potential, and how to set anchors at the top and bottom of the crag using a variety of methods and materials. We’ll also cover how to deal with the typical issues that can complicate a day of toproping: difficult cliff-top access, troublesome situations at the edge, awkward descent options, and other potential problems.
