No experience is necessary. All equipment and adaptations are provided. Participants must be independent and manage self-care or bring a care-giver to provide assistance.


Introduction to Rock Climbing
Whether you are new to rock climbing or have climbed indoors previously, outdoor rock climbing presents unique athletic and mental challenges, and demands a wide range of technical and judgment skills that can only be learned outdoors. This course is designed as a comprehensive introduction to rock climbing, both for beginners who have never climbed before and for indoor climbers who want to transition into outdoor rock climbing or alpinism.

The course has three primary components:

  • Movement skills, including techniques that are hard to learn indoors, such as jamming and friction climbing
  • Technical systems, including knots, anchors, belaying, rappelling, and top-rope site management
  • Judgment skills, including route-finding, recognizing hazards, and risk management.
