Climbing

Rock climbing is at the heart of movement in the mountains. The Southeast provides some amazing rock climbing venues for adventuring or training for bigger objectives in larger ranges. Come share some mountain experiences with us!

Beginner Climbing

Beginner climbing often consists of top roping and is a great way for beginners to explore climbing in the single pitch setting. Fundamental knots and belaying will be taught to facilitate the day and a rappel if time allows.

Advanced Climbing

Want just a bit more exposure? Climbing multiple consecutive pitches is a fun way to take your climbing further and gain that “summit” experience. There are many longer routes in the Southeast to climb for any ability level.
