Trad Fundamentals

(a.k.a. Gym to Crag)

Getting Started Trad Climbing...

Getting started in traditional climbing can be intimidating and difficult. We've long held the belief that the mentor/apprentice relationship is the ideal way to break into the sport, and we've designed our courses to incorporate that style of experiential learning.

Trad Fundamentals is designed for new climbers, and climbers transitioning from the gym, bouldering, sport climbing or top roping to the freedom of multi-pitch traditional climbing. Our guides work with you on the rocks and in our training center to give you the big picture of traditional climbing, and to teach you the finer points to prep you to climb multi-pitch routes with a partner.
