Intro rock climb teaches you about how to move on rock, tie into a rope, and belay helping you take the next step for the first time climbing outside while surrounded by madrona trees, shore pines, wild roses and eagles soar overhead. The first day begins with an equipment review and a lesson on the essential knot skills required for the day’s climbing. You will also learn proper belaying techniques that will prepare you for actual climbing. Once the basics are covered, you begin climbing. Communication signals and various friction climbing techniques will be covered. After a break, the group will move onto steeper terrain. Mt.
