This intermediate course is designed for people who have been consistently climbing indoors and are ready to move outside!


The gym to crag course is a 2 day program.  We spend the first evening at The Climbing Wall reviewing and learning new techniques and skills (usually 4-6 hours), and the second day is spent out at a local climbing area practicing and perfecting those newly learned skills and techniques (usually 6-8 hours).

Participants must be belay certified at The Climbing Wall or able to pass an experience test-out before signing up for this class.  We can have up to 4 participants per session.  This course can be scheduled as a private lesson with a min. of 2 participants or is occasionally offered as a clinic on set dates.  Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to schedule a class.

  • Inspecting bolts and fixed gear
