First-Timers Club

If you've never been out on real rock, or its been a while, this is an excellent option to get your bearings on a vertical surface. The concentration of this course is to familiarize yourself with specialized climbing equipment, their uses, and just getting to spend time on a rock!

Learn better footwork and climbing techniques. This is a great option for groups and families just looking for a fun climbing experience.
