Description

Rock Climbing is a thrilling, difficult, fun and physically demanding activity. It offers as much as it requires. As a result, it is important to get proper training so you can enjoy the activity safely and securely. And on this rock climbing course that can last from one to several days, it is our goal to teach you as much as possible. And we will do that in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of North Carolina.

There are a number of great climbing sites to choose from in the mountains of North Carolina. And we will use our experience to find the perfect one for you. And once that site is established, we will begin teaching you several important techniques crucial for successful rock climbing.

During this course you will learn about the different types of knots you will need. Those knots include a bowline, water knot, double fisherman, clover hitch, prussik and different variations of a figure eight knot. We will cover climbing equipment, from harnesses to belaying tools, and how to properly use them. We will cover anchoring details, including bolts and how to create a common point. And we will cover rappelling, from the necessary devices to back-ups and self belaying. There are other techniques we will go over as well, and the amount you learn will depend on how much time you wish to take the course.

So if you want to learn how to rock climb on some great sites in a beautiful mountain range, send us a request. We will be happy to not only teach you this great sport, but to also show you the beauty of the North Carolina Appalachian mountains.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
