Intro To Climbing Course

From: $320.00


Our Intro To Climbing Course is the perfect course for beginners! You can’t go wrong climbing around Zion. Children from as young as 5 years old have crushed this course. This intro course offers you the comfort of going out with our AMGA certified climbing guide or an accomplished rock and alpine climber.  All of our local climbing guides are passionate rock climbers dedicated to Zion and Southern Utah climbing. We look forward to sharing our knowledge of the area with you. Our passion is climbing and we truly enjoy sharing these beautiful cliffs with others. From sandstone to basalt and limestone, we have areas that are perfect for all ages and ability levels. 

During your Intro To Climbing Course you will learn the first things you need to know to become an accomplished rock climber. You should expect to be out anywhere from 7-9 hours. This time is from “shop to shop”. There will be some light hiking (under 1 hour) so wear comfortable hiking shoes. Your guide will provide you with all the needed gear prior to your trip. Just remember to bring plenty of water and some snacks or a lunch. 

We want to accommodate you, so all our trips are private. As a result, your start time can be adjusted around your travel plans and you will never be grouped with others unless requested.

A short 1/2 Mile hike will get you to the base. Enjoy the varied and fun rock that Southern Utah has to offer. We don’t simply tie you into a rope and say good luck. Our instructional based guiding methods enables you to learn safe use of the equipment as well as proper climbing movement.
