During the basics expedition, guides teach the fundamentals of climbing movement and belaying in an easy-to-follow progression. Basics trips are held on weekends from 9 a.m. to noon or from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The intermediate trip lasts from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and teaches more advanced climbing skills, including rappelling, allowing climbers to feel more independent at the crag.

Seasoned guides and instructors, many of whom are trained by organizations such as the National Outdoor Leadership School and the American Mountain Guides Association, lead classes that teach students important lessons ranging from backcountry snow basics to avalanche rescue. In summer months, the experts lead guided climbing and backpacking trips and teach riders to careen down rocky paths of every sort during mountain-biking lessons.
