Rock Climbing Clinics | Easy Transition to Outdoor Climbing

All rock climbing clinics will include general information, things you need to take into consideration while climbing outdoors, plus a more detailed breakdown of the proper gear to use, when/how to use it and safety. Get expert-advice from professional certified instructors in the field.

Each clinic is $65 and has a maximum capacity of 30 participants. Confirmed participants will then be divided into groups with an assigned guide. Each sold-out clinic will have a waiting list; wait-listed members will not be charged until a spot becomes available.

This is our 3rd year running our outdoor clinics program. Previous years have been a huge success and have filled up quickly. Clinic are super affordable thanks to great generosity of supporters and sponsors, who want to provide outdoor education to those who don't have the means to pay for private instruction or group courses.

The main focus throughout the day will be to cover fundamentals and differences between indoor and outdoor climbing. Outdoor rock climbing safety concerns, partner safety checks, proper tie-in and belay techniques and more. You will go home with a fresh new perspective of how outdoor climbing can be fun when done safely.
