On this full day course, I would like to teach you how to sport rock climb. Geared toward beginners, this course will help you learn several skills necessary for proper, fun and safe sport rock climbing. Furthermore, we will be taking this course in the mountainous region of British Columbia, Canada, near the beautiful area of Squamish.

This course is ideal for people who feel they are ready to progress from indoor gym climbing or outdoor bouldering. This course is for those who are ready to take on nature’s climbing walls.

It is crucial in order to progress to more advanced techniques that can lead you to bigger, more challenging, and ultimately more rewarding rock walls. Some examples of what you will learn during this course include the following.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am an ACMG Rock Guide, I started guiding because I am very passionate about teaching people the technical side of climbing as well as the emotional achievements that come with challenging yourself and connecting with nature.

I have been climbing since I was a kid with my teddy bear clipped to my harness, and since then I have dedicated years to travelling, rock climbing, mountaineering, and improving my technical skills.

I have climbed El Capitan in Yosemite Valley 4 times, sent 5.12 in 5 different countries, and love combining the techniques from rock types around the world. I am also an Industrial Rope Access Technician and enjoy geeking out on the physics of rope systems.
