If you have wanted to learn how to rock climb, this is your chance! Learn climbing skills in a safe, supportive, and fun environment. This trip is also a great way to brush up on your climbing skills, especially if you have been away from the sport for a while or have only been climbing in indoor gyms.

This class will teach the fundamental skills used for rock climbing, including safety and climbing etiquette, use of equipment, basic knots used for tying into your harness, and climbing techniques. All necessary equipment will be provided, but feel free to bring your own.

If there are sufficient number of intermediate climbers, we will break into beginner and intermediate groups. The morning will focus on rock climbing skills and easy climbs. The afternoon climbs will be chosen based on the level of the group.

Registration Deadline: Friday, April 28, 2017
