Evo Rock Intro to climbing class

Our Intro to Climbing class will help you learn the basic skills you need to climb on a rope. You will learn the climbing basics – grading systems, technique basics, how to fit a harness properly, how to tie in, and how to belay. To learn how to belay, you will need a partner, so it may be a fun experience to share with a friend or family member. Our instruction will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to pass a belay test, after which you will be free to climb for as long as you like. For $35 you not only receive our instructional Intro to Climbing Class but also a day pass and rental equipment. Rental equipment includes harness, shoes, and a belay device that you are free to use for the rest of the day.

“My partner and I did a half-day climb in Acadia National Park with Noah, who was a terrific guide. He recommended a climb for us up the South Bubble, which we had to ourselves all morning. He helped us feel at ease and not only told us all the relevant safety and equipment info, but also provided information on the park and surrounding area.”
