Intro to Rock Climbing Trip Overview

Rock climbing with Outdoor Explore is a fun and exciting way to challenge yourself physically and mentally, while enjoying beautiful surroundings and great company. Our Intro to Rock Climbing day is the perfect way to learn some new skills and try something different.

Our climbing courses are based in Squamish, British Columbia, in the beautiful Sea to Sky corridor. Squamish is the rock climbing capital of Canada, and boasts world class rock climbing, as well as many other sports. The intro to rock climbing course is designed to give you a taste of what climbing in Squamish is all about, in a safe and fun environment.

The day starts by meeting your guide and covering a few important safety notes. We'll get you sized up with a harness and a helmet, then head to the crag. After setting up the ropes, your guide will explain and demonstrate some key skills behind rock climbing to help you get the most out of your day. Then it's time to jump on the rocks! There are climbs of all difficulties available, so you can stay within your comfort zone, or push your limits.

What our customers say about Outdoor Explore guided adventures
"
While on holiday in Vancouver my husband and I went on the 5 day Powell Forest canoe trip with Outdoor Explore earlier this month. We had little experience with Canadian canoes and it took us a little while to get the hang of things but once we were going it was wonderful paddling across the 4 lakes and the scenery was fantastic. The trip was very well organised, all the equipment and food was arranged for us but we had to bear in mind that everything had to be carried between the lakes so we had to make sure that our personal kit was as light as possible. The portaging was the hardest part of the trip as the boats were heavy and some of the bags were heavy too but thankfully the longest one was only 2.8 km so not too far and we managed between the group to carry everything. Each night we stopped at a camp site on the lake which were all equipped with flattened areas for the tents, composting toilets and some had fire drums. Fortunately there wasn't a fire ban so we could have a fire each night. You really felt you were out in the wilderness when all the food was in a bear-proof barrel tided to a tree at night, all other smelly items had to be put up a tree or up a bear hang. We even had to dig a hole to spit our toothpaste in so that the smell didn't attract bears to the area. It was all very exciting for people who come from the UK where we don't have any bears. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and would do the trip again....
