Trad Climbing

Trad Climbing, short for Traditional, is the purest form of protecting yourself as you climb. We teach American Mountain Guides Association techniques to give you the skills to place removable gear for leading and building anchors.  As Rick Watson once said, we will give you the necessary tools for your toolbox to be confident in choosing the right tool for the right situation. Learn these techniques at Enchanted Rock, but use them at any Trad area anywhere in the world. Trad climbing should be taught by someone who is trained in our opinion.  Yes you can learn from your buddy, but you’ll be guaranteed to go through some growing pains.  Don’t learn like we did and get taught the proper way.  We advise taking a two day course and focus on crack climbing skills on the second day. If you have any questions please Contact Us anytime.
