Big Wall: 1 Day Ground School 2 Days on the Wall

Day 1

Meet your guide at your specified time, stated in your confirmation email, at our Store Location in the center of Springdale, UT. Your guide will inspect all personal equipment, and will outfit you with the necessary technical equipment that is missing.

Drive out to the Wall, haul a load to the base of the route, and begin learning the necessary skills needed for being a solid Big Wall Partner.

Day 2

Leave our shop early and hike to the base of the route. Your guide will be leading all pitches as you try to make it to the bivy location. Enjoy the views from the portaledge as you sleep under a star-littered desert night sky.

Day 3

Rise with the sun and enjoy some hot coffee and breakfast. Leave the portaledge and haul bag behind as we push for the summit. From there, we rappel the route and hike out.
