Choose Between Two Options

During the basics expedition, guides teach the basics of climbing movement, belaying, and rappelling along an easy-to-follow path. 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 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and teaches more advanced climbing and maneuvering skills, allowing climbers to feel more independent on the crag.

Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

Excellent guide and great experience. Would highly recommend!
Megan B. · September 15, 2016
Great guides, great fun. If you're looking for a strenuous workout, this isn't it (from perspective of a reasonably fit 50-year-old), but it is a good walk at altitude in a beautiful environment with good people.

Definitely a fun time. Would have liked to do more advanced course. Definitely want to come back.
