All of our instructional rock climbing courses are designed to help aspiring rock climbers transition to the next level. Whether you are an indoor gym climber looking to take your skills outdoors, a sport climber looking to start leading trad, or an experienced multi-pitch rock climber needing to brush up on rope rescue skills, we have an instructional course designed just for you! All courses are 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 and American Mountain Guide Association.
Through discussion and lots of hands-on practice, climbers will learn how to place gear in crack systems, analyze the gear placements, mitigate rope drag by using alpine quickdraws, organize gear on their harnesses, and practice trad leading by way of mock leads.
Rates for Instructional Courses
In efforts to make our instructional courses more accessible and affordable for responsible aspiring outdoor climbers, we have special discounted instructional rates. 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 and taught by a professionally certified rock climbing guide in beautiful Joshua Tree National Park.
