Intro to Climbing
$55.00 – $115.00
New for 2018 :: Sliding Scale Course Fees | Women’s Wilderness has created a sliding scale for all its Women’s programs in an effort to keep our courses affordable to a wide range of people. All our pricing scales are significantly below the prices of for-profit companies. The top price represents the actual cost to run the course, and the second two tiers represent scholarships. We set forth no criteria and trust that each individual will pay what they feel is appropriate.
This is a get-you-out-there kind of course! Have you always been curious about climbing but never found quite the right situation to try it?
Have you been climbing in the gym but want to see what it is like climbing outdoors?
Have you climbed outdoors a few times but want to experience getting outside with a truly supportive, fun group of women?
This is your course! Join us for a day of rock climbing with our professional instructors who will walk you through helmets and harnesses, knots, belaying, movement, and any other questions you might have. We’ll get you out on the rock climbing as much as possible…we promise you will leave wanting more!
⇒ Did you know that our Rock Technicians are AMGA SPI certified? And that they are trained in our custom curriculum by professional Big Wall climber Madaleine Sorkin? Yep, they are rad women!
