This course covers the basics of rock climbing including belaying, climbing knots, rappelling, and basic rock climbing movement. We will meet at the parking lot at our schedule time, fill out our liability waivers, and then get geared up for the day. We then have a 10 minute hike through the forest until we arrive at our climbing spot for the day, where we will set-up our anchors and begin climbing. Climbs can vary in difficulty from 5.4 all the way to 5.13b, so there will be something to climb for all ability levels.
