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.

Join an Outdoor Explore intro to rock climbing course today and experience the rush of scaling some of the best rock climbs in the world.

What our customers say about Outdoor Explore guided adventures
I recently returned from the Powell Forest Canoe Circuit with Outdoor Explore. I was a little apprehensive, prior to the trip, as I have only canoed once before (and only for an hour!), but I needn't have worried. You don't feel rushed or overwhelmed during the trip, but it's definitely important to note that this is a strenuous trip and the portages are hard work - so you definitely need to be willing to sweat!! It's helpful to take sandals which you're OK to get wet and wear while getting in and out of the canoe (at locations without a jetty). Also, very helpful to have comfortable shoes (trail or runners) for the portages. Definitely be as conservative as possible with added extras (books/personal items etc) as you really notice the extra weight during the portages! This was an unforgettable experience which I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to escape for a few days without Wi-Fi and, getting back to basics and enjoying nature! Our guide provided delicious food our meals, had great camping equipment, and took great care of us - thank you!...
