What to expect

  • How Much Climbing?
    • Plan to be at the crag for about 5 hours the first day, 8 hours the second, and 5 hours the third day. There will be plenty of space to move at your own pace!
  • How is food handled?
    • Certain meals are included in your tuition cost (see “what’s included tab”). We try to work with local chefs and caterers to support local business. All meals will be prepared and individually packaged to maintain COVID safety. Meals can be warmed and enjoyed at the campsite or taken to enjoy at the crag. Specifics on the meals and a menu will be provided about 3 weeks before the trip date.
  • What if everyone in the group has different experience levels?
    • Newer Climbers: We will focus on getting you up and running on important skills like belaying, understanding movement, and learning about what movement feels like over rock and at heights.
    • Intermediate Climbers: We’ll be sure to get folks with some experience on challenging routes, trying new ways to move over rock, and exploring some new mental freedom!
    • Advanced Climbers: For folks who feel comfortable outdoors, we will seek out challenging projects and moves to push your limits and work through effective projecting and advanced movement skills.
