About the Course
The Gym to Stone course has been designed to meet the needs of gym climbers interested in transitioning to climbing outdoors. It covers a wide range of material including top rope climbing and belaying, an overview of anchor building, bouldering, spotting, outdoor climbing techniques, outdoor ethics, and route finding. One of the greatest things about this course is that it includes more actual climbing than any other instructional course! Climbers who primarily want to climb, but would appreciate some guidance and instruction while transitioning to outdoor climbing are encouraged to take this course!
Rates for Instructional Courses
In efforts to make our instructional courses more accessible and affordable for aspiring outdoor climbers, we have a special discounted instructional rate of $330 for up to 3 participants. For groups of more than 3 climbers it is an additional $110/climber. Climbers are encouraged to bring their own gear to practice with, however, Stone Adventures will provide any needed rock climbing equipment at no extra cost. All courses are 6 hours long, taught by a full time professional rock climbing guide and the curriculum is up-to-date with the standards of the Professional Climbing Guide Institute (PCGI) and American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA). Last but not least, the courses are held outside in beautiful Joshua Tree National Park!
