Instructional Rock Climbing Courses

Our Instructional Courses have set curriculums geared toward the recreational climber who wants to learn the foundational skills and techniques to set up their own climbs without the assistance of a professional guide. The Instructional Courses program is designed as a progression, starting with anchor building (natural & artificial) and progressing to lead climbing (sport & trad) and single pitch self-rescue. While you do not have to take the courses in progression, there is a list of recommended prior

experience for each course to ensure you get the

most out of your experience.

Normally offered as 2 day courses, 1 day options are available for some courses. Please navigate to the specific course pages for additional details regarding course length.
