After you have read over the information, you can book a climbing event by clicking any "BOOK NOW" button on the website. Please choose any available date and time slot.

Out of the ordinary outside activity for groups and singles. This is a whole learning experience; touches upon the uses of climbing, the importance of environmental respect, and the mental, physical and spiritual health of the climbers. A MUST TRY!!
