    Try this discipline for the first time or practice specific techniques while in the great outdoors with my full-day rock climbing courses!

    Depending on your availability, I offer different venues in Oregon and Washington state. You could choose between Exit 38, Frenchman Coulee, Mount ErieIndex, Broughton Bluff, or Smith Rock. We’ll find the venue that best adapts to your wishes and level!

    These 4-hour climbing sessions will allow you to try new techniques on the rocks in the company of an experienced guide. Bring friends or family along and I’ll put together a private course just for you!

    Because this is a custom course, we can accommodate varying levels of climbing ability. We’ll set goals together and make sure you achieve them during the session. We can also arrange for half-day or multi-day courses so don’t hesitate to ask for what would work best for you.

    Advanced climbers should also check out my rock climbing courses for experts. They are a great way to take your climbing skills up a notch!

    Contact me regarding my full-day courses or if you’d like to arrange for a multi-day option. Your satisfaction is guaranteed! We’ll spend a great day out on the rocks together.

    Just took an intermediate rock climbing course.  What a fantastic class.  Our instructor was Joel and we started off covering all the different types of gear, static vs dynamic force, etc. before going into how to correctly and safely use it.  There were only 3 of us and with an 8 hour day we got lots of practice in. Joel was super patient and adapted the class to our skill level and the questions we had.    I walked away feeling like I could do this on my own safely.  Cannot recommend Kaf enough, if you\'re thinking of transitioning to outdoor climbing, call them up

    yo sólo asisti a este curso en agosto de 2012. El equipo de profesores donde muy paciente, eficientes y una gran actitud. Puedo decir que les encanta lo que hacen y era obvio que donde hay para nosotros los estudiantes, para compartir su pasión y verdaderamente querían que aprender y poder subir por nuestra cuenta con seguridad. donde Los estudiantes de todos los niveles de escalada y parecía que todos tienen una gran actitud. todos llegamos como extraños y de alguna manera separen como amigos, sabiendo que la escalada no es una actividad de solo. El día volamos por pero estaba lleno de nudos, aseguramiento, real escalada, técnicas y maniobras geniales compañía. Recomendaría esta clase a todos los que vayan solos o con amigos que quieran aprender lo básico en verdadero rock, o si quieres ser re-aclimatado después de haber estado ausente para el mundo de la escalada y necesita una revisión. Uno de mis días favoritos hasta ahora este verano!
