$49 for Basic Climbing Skills Outdoor Rock-Climbing Course ($100 Value)

All classes take place on a Saturday. Choose from 15 course dates.

During the 101: Basic Climbing Skills course, budding climbers spend an entire day learning the ropes and practicing basic skills on diverse faces and slabs. Instructors distribute safety gear, helmets, harnesses, and rocket-powered grappling hooks before moving on to scaling techniques. Participants learn how to simplify scrambles up sheer slabs, vertical faces, and daring cracks. Skills practiced include hands-on top-rope climbs, voice commands, and belaying teamwork.

Rock About

When students sign on for a Rock About climbing class, they don't just learn to rope their way up mountainsides and trade banter with goats. The company's certified guides also educate clients about the cultural history and complex geology of the climbing sites. On climbing treks to Reimers Ranch Park, owner Adam Mitchell and his team teach top-roping and belaying techniques while exploring the notion that climbing allows humankind to commune safely with the earth's natural wonders. For those uneasy about vertical exploration, the guides offer non-climbing adventures such as interpretive hikes.

Reviews

I had never rock climbed before & this was a perfect starter course that pushed me to explore my limits.

The staff was very knowledgeable about the area, the cliffs, and I felt they worked hard to keep us as safe as possible.
