Salt Lake Full-Day Introductory Rock Climbing Clinic

Salt Lake Full-Day Introductory Rock Climbing Clinic | undefined

Join a guide from Utah Mountain Adventures on this introductory rock climbing clinic in Salt Lake, Utah and experience the rush of this exhilarating sport!



1 Day

Apr - Aug




Salt Lake county is a great place for rock climbing. This exciting sport is a fun way to spend time outdoors and explore beautiful natural environments. On this full day introductory rock climbing clinic, we will show you all the necessary techniques to get you started on this fun and exhilarating activity!

The focus of our course, for which you need no prior experience, will be on safety. In order to ensure safe climbing, we will learn how to use climbing equipment, how to make sturdy knots, and techniques such as belaying, rappelling and anchoring. We will also cover topics including how to move on the rocks, how the rating system works and recognition of potential safety hazards.

Our course will begin early in the morning at 8 am. We will start with a review of harness, knots and communication. Once we cover the basics, we will start with rock routes that present a moderate difficulty and go building up from there. As we incorporate more techniques such as  edging and smearing, stemming, jamming hands and feet, crimping, and lie-backing, we will also try different pitches and increase the level of difficulty. Consequently, we will be building up on both technique and confidence.

We will also work on specific rope management and rope skills. These will range from something as seemingly simple as coiling a rope, to clipping and unclipping bolts, removing nuts and camming devices, and equalizing and cleaning top-rope anchors. Finally, we will wrap up at around 4pm with a whole new set of skills that will allow us to then take our climbing to the next level. A good option for this would be to try the more advanced multi-pitch climbing course which we also offer. Once you start rock climbing you will want more!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
