If you have never tried rock climbing before, have never climbed outdoors, or want a review, then this is the perfect day for you.  Our Intro to Rock Climbing Course takes place in a beautiful location with a fun and casual introduction to the sport.  We will cover techniques, belaying, rappelling, gear, with a focus on lots of climbing.  Combine this with our Top-Rope Anchors program for a full weekend of fun and skill development.  The combination is equivalent to a two-day Intro to Rock course and will provide participants with the necessary skills to safely climb on their own.
