Climbing Clubs

Climbing Clubs are for those who wish to learn the sport of rock climbing as a recreational pursuit or in combination with another sport. As the climber progresses in ability, the amount of climbing-specific coaching increases to allow climbers to progress and achieve their goals. The levels (Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3) are separated according to skill with age-based offerings in levels, as enrollment allows.
