Advanced skills to take your climbing to the next level

This climbing camp is for experienced lead climbers ready to gain more tools and skills for independent climbing, to confidently travel to new climbing areas and make solid climbing decisions. Primarily developing traditional skills; placing and cleaning gear, building anchors for multi-pitch and self rescue skills.

Develop your toolbox for the next climbing adventure

This is a next level immersion climbing camp for the teen and young adult designed for those with lead climbing experience outside and in the gym, who want to learn about climbing beyond clipping bolts. Climbing that requires placing your own protection, route finding and in sight problem solving. Meeting new friends and developing climbing partnerships and solid camp craft are essential parts for maximizing the odds for fun safe climbing trips and success on your over all climbing. Our goal is to promote a sense of adventure, life-long learning in climbing, and an enduring appreciation for the outdoors and the climbing community.
