Book your Sport Climbing lesson today... and have fun while being safe outdoor climbing!

 Sport Leading  $19900

If you are going to take your climbing outside, learn how to build anchors properly. Don't rely on your friend that 'knows' what he is doing. You can't buddy check the anchor if you don't know how it's supposed to be. Most people learn unsafe anchor building from other friends or from the internet. We teach the highest and safest standards set by the ACMG.
Basic Anchors teaches you how to build the safest anchors on existing bolts and large healthy trees.

1hr in the gym plus 4hrs in Squamish.
Prerequisites: Lead Climbing/Belay & Anchor Building

Skills Learned

  • Provide Equipment List
  • Cliffside Safety
  • Bolt Assessment
  • Anchor Review
  • Cleaning Route

 Sport Cleaning

Sport Cleaning is not about polishing your equipment after climbing. Cleaning is referring to the removal of any equipment you placed during your climb. As important as it is to lead a sport route safely, it's just as important to be able to come down and remove all your gear safely. Most accidents happen on the descent, so we focus a lot on the cleaning of the route.

We also cover escaping the route when you can't finished the climb which is pretty common on projects.
Our Sport Climbing Lessons INCLUDE cleaning and escaping routes.

 Rappelling  $5000

If you do not already know how to rappel and use an approved back up system, then you can add Rappelling to your lesson. It's one of the basic outdoor skills you will certainly need to know. Adding our Rappelling course will increase your gym lesson time by 1hr.
