Earth Treks’ 2014 Outdoor Classes Now Open for Registration!

We know it’s hard to think about rock climbing outside when there is a foot of snow on the ground, but in two short months the outdoor rock season will start in earnest.  Earth Treks offers outdoor rock climbing classes in MD and VA for all abilities and interests, including those who are brand new to climbing and those who have already gotten started with indoor climbing.  If you already know how to belay and have been climbing in the gym, you’ll want to check out the Gym 2 Crag Package.  The Gym 2 Crag Package will prepare you to head to any crag with the knowledge and confidence to set up your own top rope system and climb outdoors with technique and finesse, and includes Intermediate Rock Climbing and Top Rope Systems 1.  If you’re looking for a weekend adventure, check out the West Virginia Road Trip.  This is a another option for indoor climbers looking to climb outdoors and includes two days of climbing and top rope anchoring instruction at beautiful Coopers Rock, WV.

You’ll be surprised how many great outdoor climbing areas you’ll find in Maryland and Virginia and Earth Treks’ classes visit many of them, including Carderock, Annapolis Rocks, and Rocks State Park, MD and Great Falls, VA.  These sites are easily accessible from the Baltimore – Washington region.

For those who already got started climbing outdoors last year, it’s time to push your skills to the next level with classes like Top Rope Systems 2 and Intro to Trad Climbing.
