… because it’s tough to get started on your own
Climbing is a culture that is best entered into with guidance. On top of safety and convenience, there are ethical, environmental, and access issues that every climber needs to know about. Each of us has been lucky enough to find our start in the sport, whether it was with a friend, by taking a class, or by being professionally guided ourselves. We’d love to give you a fun, safe and extraordinary introduction to climbing.
… we love sharing climbing with good people
Ultimately, climbing is about enjoying life with the people around you. Each one of us has been positively impacted by climbing, and we want to share that experience with you.
… climbing has something for everyone
Climbing has something to offer you, whether you’re looking for a quick and fun workout, a relaxing and beautiful day with friends, a full day of adventure, or a multi-day experience. There’s no better way to unwind, meet great people, and get fit all at the same time.
… climbing teaches each of us
A climber often reaches a moment on a climb where they’re not sure what their next move is. They think they might see the next hold, but it doesn’t look very good — they’re hesitant. This hesitation can lead to growing fear and fatigue until, eventually, the climber is forced to hang on the rope. The opportunity was missed, but the lesson learned is that the only way to move forward is to take that next step into the unknown, keep trying. Climbing is such a beautiful reflection of life in so many ways, that when we become better climbers, we also become better people, learning more about ourselves.
