New Climbers

Begin Your Adventure

This full-day climbing session is perfect for groups or individuals with little to no climbing experience. Vertical Voyages will provide all equipment necessary for climbing outside. We will set up ropes on a variety of routes for you and your friends/family to climb. Your instructor will also give you tips and climbing techniques to enhance your climbing experience. In addition, we will have a rappelling station set up for you to learn the basics of rappelling. Our rock climbing courses are led by AMGA Certified Single Pitch Instructors who have had extensive training and experience teaching outdoor climbing and have passed the AMGA Single Pitch certification exam.
