Free Queer Outdoor Climbing Day

Please join Dylan Thomas for a FREE day of Outdoor Climbing and Queer joy in Bolton!

Some experience with climbing in general is requested. Please let us know if you need specific gear (if you have your own please feel free to bring it!). The beautiful thing about climbing is that beginners can climb alongside those with experience, and the level of challenge can be adjusted individually. The day will begin with a discussion about safety, gear, and basic technique, then we will get into climbing and rappelling, always operating with the "Challenge by Choice" mentality. 

Upon booking, your guide will be in touch with recommended things to bring for the day, the meeting location, and other specifics. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

Dylan has earned his Single Pitch Instructor certification through the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA) and beyond guiding is a rock specialist for Petra's summer camps and private instructor. Dylan's strengths as a guide are his patience, fortitude, and articulation; and some of his favorite guiding topics are Climbing Photography, Intro to Traditional Climbing, and Mental Training for Climbing. On the wall Dylan likes adventure climbs, hard friction slabs, and no hands rests; and off the wall Dylan likes trailrunning, snowboarding, photography and reading. He is also gay and is enthusiastic to work with LGBTQ+ clients. Fun Fact: Despite having traveled all over New England to climb, Dylan's favorite crag is Marshfield Ledge, right here in Vermont.
