Multi-pitch climbing is a form of rock climbing where you ascend a route in several sections or pitches. It’s an intermediate to advanced level activity, where you get to climb higher and experience more varied terrains compared to single-pitch climbing.
This multi-pitch climb is perfect for those with some rock climbing experience and looking to step up their climbing game or those with advanced experience looking to tick off some bucket list climbs. It provides a challenging yet manageable environment to develop your climbing skills further.
All of our guides are properly trained and certified through the American Mountain Guide Association for the terrain that they guide in. We also maintain wilderness first responder certifications and carry satellite communicators in case of an emergency in the backcountry. Our guides adhere to stringent safety protocols and use top-notch climbing equipment, ensuring your safety throughout your experience.
Our guides are skilled at interpreting the weather in our area. More often than not, forecasted rain is a late afternoon sprinkle that doesn’t affect the day. If the weather does interfere with the climb, we can reschedule you for a future date.
