Not just for beginners. If you’re looking for a day of climbing this is what you are looking for. We can push any level at any of the locations and we work with the clients that are in front of us. This is not your hokey tourist trap. We really aim to show everyone a good, fun challenge. This is a great idea for families, friends, partners, and, well, whoever wants to have a great time together and learn to trust and encourage each other.

How long will we climb?

Most people complete six to eight climbs in this first session. Allow for at least four to five hours for your climbing day, sometimes five to six for Enchanted Rock. We’re not so concerned about the clock but about safely introducing you to the thrilling sport of rock climbing!
