From the inside to the outside

From Gym to Rock Climbing

From Gym to Rock Climbing Course

This is the perfect course for gym climbers looking to start climbing on real rock.

Do you climb regularly in your local climbing gym but have yet to venture outdoors? Do you know a lot more about foot placement or conditioning than about knots or anchors?
We can help you make the transition from gym to rock with our From Gym to Rock course.

In the From Gym to Rock course we will introduce you to important factors for climbing outdoors as well as the differences between climbing indoors and outdoors
Climbing safely outdoors requires an intimate understanding of the entire belay system, a strong background in knots, and an awareness of a few extra hazards, in addition to new techniques, such as finding holds, scouting a route, and figuring out where to rest.
Just because you’ve never been outdoors does not mean that you must take the Introduction to Rock Climbing course, and just because you lead climb indoors does not necessarily mean you’re ready to do technical leading outdoors. So this course might be the right thing for you!

You’ll get lots of time climbing, and our instructors will coach you on technique and help you have successful and fun days on the rock!
