Course Summary: This course concentrates on pushing perceived limits, mentally and physically. You will learn about your real abilities, and how to expand them.


Course Description:
We can’t make you into a “rock jock” in two days, but we can open the door to harder climbs for you. By following longer, more committing and more difficult routes you gain the experience and confidence needed to climb at higher levels. The other essential ingredient, strength, is up to you.

Two days of climbing at the 5.9 and above level will leave you with jelly arms and new ideas about what can be climbed. Expect some sore muscles after this course!

For people who have climbed completed our Following Skills Evaluation and climb 5.8 comfortably.

Time to call it a day


Frigid water, crashing waves and slick rock: now we’re having fun!
