Rock Climbing Courses & Classes - Salt Lake City area, Utah

Rock Climbing Clinic:

Recognition of hazards, movement on rock, belaying, knots, rope management, rappelling and use of technical gear.


This class is designed for first time climbers, those moving outside from the gym, or anyone seeking a thorough review of the basics of rock climbing.

The instructor will go through harness, tying-in, belaying, communication, top-rope anchors, rappelling and movement on rock.

Participants will climb a variety of routes to practice these skills while the guide checks all techniques for safety and provides advice and demonstrations aimed at getting all participants to a higher level in their own climbing.

Depending on group size and individual goals, a short multi-pitch may be included in the day. It usually starts around 8AM. This will involve an introduction to natural protection (cams, stoppers, slings, etc.) and its removal and how to tie-in and belay from a ledge.

* No experience necessary for this class.
