Private Instruction with Petra Cliffs Mountaineering School

Hiring a private guide can introduce you to the world of climbing and mountain sports or take your skills to the next level. Climbers and skiers often hit plateaus that will eventually be broken through with time, but private instruction can eliminate some of the trial and error process and help you focus on better technique, providing immediate feedback and a general education to your specific needs.

Our guides work in the terrain for which they are trained or certified by the AMGA (American Mountain Guides Association). To read about the value of hiring an AMGA Guide or to view certification levels, please click here. 

Private instruction can be reserved any day of the week.  To guarantee your space please make a reservation at least 10 days in advance; we will do our best to accommodate last minute requests, but we may or may not be able to fill your request with less notice.
