The introductory rappelling course sets participants up with gear and a trained guide who mans a safety rope. Students rappel down a rock face and wave at rock window washers.

During the rock-climbing course, climbers are equipped with necessary gear, including a helmet, harness, belay device, carabiner, chalk bag, and Batman cowl. The course lasts about five hours at the Crow Hill Ledges in Leominster State Forest. Under the guidance of professional climbers, students learn to tie climbing knots and safely rappel down the rock ledge.

North Ridge Mountain Guides

North Ridge Mountain Guides founder Jamie Leahy first fell in love with scaling peaks while tackling the heights of Mount Washington. The Instructor has since defied gravity on inclines of ice and rock around the United States and in Ecuador, summiting peaks of more than 19,000 feet to touch the sky and harvest his crops of clouds by following a simple philosophy: climb hard, climb safe. This mantra guides his approach to teaching the ins and outs of belaying and rappelling and steers the expeditions he leads up the less-traveled routes of Mount Monadnock. He also shares the art of ice climbing with pupils during introductory courses that delve into subjects such as crampon placement, swinging an ice axe, and how to read the ice, which often obscures its messages in Wingdings fonts.
