Intro Outdoor Rock Climbing

Search our Site


Our Intro Rock Climbing days are a great way to spend time with your family, significant other, or to just go on a new adventure. Designed for anyone who wants to experience rock climbing outdoors, a climbing day will grow your mental and physical strengths. The best part is always  climbing to the summit, which will give you a feeling of accomplishment accompanied by breathtaking views that truly puts you in the moment.

A typical climbing day starts with an introduction to your guide followed by a brief hike through the Linville Gorge Wilderness area to beautiful granite walls ranging from 40 to 120 ft tall. Once the ropes are hung you will get to take turns climbing the wall, learning climbing specific body movements, lingo, and safety techniques. We will take a short break for lunch and snacks before going back at it.

Who is this for? Anyone with a good sense of adventure. No prior experience needed.
