*Pending weather and instructor availability.
- Over 44 years of experience providing outdoor trips

Your day will begin at nine-o-clock as you arrive and wake up with one of a variety of hot or cold drinks with a pastry, bagel, or daily special from our on site coffee kiosk.
Your guide will introduce him or herself, getting a feel of your comfort and experience level. Once the meet and greet is over, it is time to gear up and head on out to one of the local climbing spots.
There are a number of areas you can climb depending on your skill level and experience. There are climbs ideal for beginners on your first climb, or more challenging climbs where experienced climbers can hone your skills. There is the venerable Coopers Rocks to our south, the hidden gem known as Kralick, or the variety of local standbys just outside of town.
You will either jump into a van, or hop onto some complimentary mountain bikes and make tracks to the rocks.
When you get to the rocks, your guide will set up a top rope over the route you will want to climb. If you are in a large group there will be more than one route set up so there will be less down time for the climbers.
Your guide will give a basic safety talk and demonstrate some basic moves to help get you started. Then they will take their post at the one end of the rope, hook themselves in and get ready to belay, taking up the slack in the rope as you make your way up the rock wall.
Halfway through the day it is time to have a little siesta, and eat a little lunch. Then it is right back to the wall.
Smiles will abound, and hopefully you will have begun a new journey into the world of rock climbing.
Participants must be at least 10 years old. Lunch and equipment is provided.
Full day experience beginning at 9am
