If you’ve only been in the gym a few times, or have yet to experience outdoor rock climbing, this course is a great way to learn the basics and receive a low-stress introduction to outdoor rock climbing. In this course we focus on basic rock movement and fundamental climbing systems. We begin with friction climbing to develop your balance, and then incorporate both face and crack climbing techniques before progressing to more challenging climbs. You will learn standard climbing protocols under the guidance of AMGA Certified, experienced, and supportive instructors.
Our single-day Introduction to Rock Climbing Course is designed for those who are completely new to rock climbing and would like to experience what it has to offer and potentially gain valuable skills for future mountain adventures. This is the perfect course to satisfy your curiosity if you’ve been thinking about transitioning into outdoor rock climbing, or would simply like to experience the Prescott area from new heights.
First and foremost, we want every individual to be successful and walk away knowing that they gave their personal best and had a great time outdoors. Gaining proficiency in rock climbing will aid in your ability to progress towards more challenging rock climbing objectives and venues, and will also help you to develop a well-rounded understanding of the basic safety principles and mechanisms that all climbers utilize,
