Ask for a Buddy Guide while you are in the area. 
Buddy system objective: always have at least two people traveling together, that is to say, no one person is ever needing to climbing alone. We have found that people with some climbing experience may hesitate to contact a climbing guide or instructor. Thus, we offer a wording option which includes the word buddy, as a substitute for the word instructor, guide and partner.
The next step, includes: us asking you 20 questions and you booking the climbing buddy activity.

Join us outside for an intro kayaking class or to practice your skills. It is your choice! Beginner kayaking classes focus on beginner water skills and building a good foundation of technique for advanced classes.

For those of you who enjoy a clean mountain breeze, a hammock may not be the first thing that comes to mind. Much like a hammock, the port-a-ledge design allows climbers to sleep on the side of a cliff while remaining safety anchored. So feel free to exchange the work hammock for the possible use of another compact, portable sleeping arrangement during your next klettersteig, or via ferrata adventure. Despite the language used during an ascent, mountains challenge all of us. The real question is the quality of the experience. We only have so many days in our lives to speak the words: tyrolienne, Eiger, sportklettern, noboru, bergsteigen, alpinismo, faire de la varappe, escalada en roca , scalare, and rotsklimmen. Be ready for your next climb and those friendly belayers along the way.
