Learn the ropes inside, or outside, it is your choice! We facilitate an outdoor rock climbing experience designed to encompass your desired adventure objectives. Most outdoor climbing experiences will require at least a few hours, so please plan accordingly.

Buddy Guide:

$49 Reservation fee per person

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.

Guided Kayaking

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.
