OverviewIf youve taken our first class or are already familiar with basic climbing safety (figure eight knot, harness set up, and climbing on top rope), this is a great next step. This 4-hour clinic starts with a quick review of these skills. Then well teach you how to belay in a traditional ground school. Perhaps youve belayed a bit in a climbing gym, but only with a grigri? This is a great starting point to round out your knowledge of belaying techniques and skills, so that you may better understand the dynamics at work in a belay system.

Know More about this tour
Next, we’ll start you out on some easy climbing terrain so you can comfortably belay for the first time on real rock. While on these climbs, we’ll also introduce you to some fundamental climbing techniques. As time allows, we’ll progress to some slightly harder terrain where we’ll give you some exposure to intermediate climbing techniques while you continue to practice strong safety skills.
The combination of Introduction to Climbing 1 & Climbing 2 is the ultimate introduction to outdoor rock climbing. Depending on your previous experience and your level of interest in pursuing climbing as a new hobby, you may consider taking both classes on the same day. Alternatively, take Climbing 1 to try it out, and return soon if you’ve gotten hooked on climbing. Or, for the novice to “advanced beginner” gym climber with little or no belaying experience, jump straight to Climbing 2.
