Just the material you want.

The Private Rock Climbing Course is an assured way to get the most out of your valuable dollars and build on the skills you currently have. You choose the content you want to learn, and together we build a custom course that's exactly what you want and nothing else. Through the process I talk to each course member to assess your current skill level and your desired goals. Smaller group sizes allow for more individual practice at the required skill which is key for skill retention and to identify and solve skill application problems. Get a group of friends together for a more affordable and fun group experience.

Nathan Steeves.

Will was an excellent instructor. We requested a customized day course with a complex itinerary and he delivered! Well thought through and thorough instruction.

COVID and Rock Guiding

Just like other areas of our lives, we can mitigate the spread of the virus with the use of masks. 

Masks are required when we are in close proximity for example an instruction situation or at a multi pitch station. Because we are not in a confined space and we have the benefit of fresh air and the great outdoors we can remove our masks once the 2m proximity rule has been passed. This means climbing without a mask although having it in close for when doing partner checks, for example, or any other close proximity situations occurs. Please see our extensive COVID risk management plan on the About page, in the main menu.
