We’ll go over the fundamentals of climbing and focus on giving you the knowledge to become a skilled and confident rock climber.  You’ll learn about the relevant equipment, knots and terminology, and then we’ll move right into belaying, body position, footwork and working around the climbing site.  The bulk of the day is spent putting these new skills to use on the cliff, with each climber able to get in a few climbs and descents.  You will come away knowing what it is like to be a fully engaged and responsible member of a climbing party, and with a good measure of actual climbing time on the rock.
