September 13 & 14, 2019

Visit the Peta Cliffs bouldering tour guides at the top of the Notch near the Visitor's Center to find the boulders you're looking for. With one guide book out of print, Mountain Project only telling a portion of the story, our tour guides will help you find what you're looking for, and you'll likely walk away happy, tired, and with the knowledge to be able to come back and send your project on your own!


Join Petra Cliffs Mountaineering School's guides for a tour of the boulders and a chance to climb high on one of the Notch's most classic, historical routes- either The Quartz Crack and The Diagonal (guide will recommend a route).
