Yosemite Rock Climbing
Daily, All Levels.
Private guided rock climbing courses and classes are available in Southern Yosemite from April through November. Hiring a private guide is one of the best ways to develop specific skills, climb many routes in a day, learn to lead climb, try rock climbing for the first time, or just get to know an area new to you. All gear is included and our guides are skilled, patient, and enjoyable people to spend the day with.
3 Days / 2 Nights, All Levels.
Small groups, tent camps near the climbing areas, and a program designed to cater to all levels of climbers make these trips a great way to spend a summer weekend in the Southern Yosemite high country and a winter weekend in the Sierra front country. Rock Climbing Weekends and Southern Yosemite Mountain Guides are a great way to make the transition from the gym to outdoor climbing.
5 Days / 4 Nights, Intermediate Skills.
Take your skills a step further. Learn anchors, leading principles, AMGA standards for top ropes, advanced techniques and multipitch systems. Programs run Monday through Friday and include all camp gear at our basecamp, dinners & breakfasts, and all rock climbing gear. Small groups, expert guides, and a lot of great climbing.
