Introduction to Outdoor Rock Climbing

Outdoor Rock Climbing Fundamentals & Techniques

Where it all begins. The Introduction to Rock Climbing Course focuses on fundamental skills and techniques. Participants will receive expert climbing instruction and learn how to use harnesses, tie knots, belay and rappel. This is the perfect experience for those taking their first steps into the vertical world or for climbers who have yet to learn to belay.  The skills you’ll learn will also prepare you to climb indoors, and participants will receive a coupon for a free day pass at an Earth Treks Climbing Center!

Already know how to belay? If you already know how to belay, but haven’t climbed outside yet, you’ll want to start with the Intermediate Rock Climbing course.
