Top Roping: When the rope runs from the belayer, up to an anchor system at the top of the climb, and then back down to the climber. This is a great place to start climbing, or expand your world from the bouldering wall.

Lead Climbing: When the rope starts at the bottom of the climb and the climber leads the rope up the climb, clipping it to anchor points along the way. This is the most technical climbing, because there are many things to think about while performing it. This is also the type of climbing that can take you around the world and to the best places. You must be an experienced top-rope climber, and be able to comfortably climb 5.10 before taking this class.


Climbing is a complex sport that combines strength, technique and balance. We can help you fine tune your movement whether you are just begining or if you have hit a pleateu.

Sport Climbing Techniques and Strategies: This class can be a follow up for our Lead Climbing class, or if you are and exprienced lead climber, this class will hep you improve your skills, and become a better climber.

This is NOT a trad climbing or anchor building class. When you sport climb outside, you need to remove your gear from the top of the climb before you move on. This class covers the basics of doing this, so that you do not have to learn while doing it 50 feet off the ground. It is highly recommended if you are climbing outside, regardless of your climbing level.
