AMGA Certified Rock Guide Jon Richard offers guided opportunities to climbing destinations throughout the United States. These opportunities allow climbers to experience multi-pitch climbing routes that you might not be willing to lead on your own. These opportunities are primarily offered December – March and July – August. You do not have to have prior multi-pitch or trad climbing experience. However, this is a great way to experience trad protected climbs to help you decide if this is an area of climbing you’d like to learn to do on your own.
