Outdoor Welcome Packet & Packing Lists

Outdoor Health History Form


  • Q: What if I don't have any of my own gear?

  • A: Petra Cliffs can provide all neccessary technical equipment including helmets, harnesses, shoes, mountaineering boots, ropes, and all other appropriate technical equipment.


  • Q: What should I wear and pack for my course or day of private guiding?

  • A: Packing lists can be found in the welcome packet above. In general you want to bring food, water, activity appropriate clothing, and any personal gear you might want. If you have questions about the gear you have feel free to email


  • Q: Where will I meet my guide?

  • A: For most programs you will meet your guide at the parking lot for your objective of the day. This means you will need to provide or secure your own transportation to and from the meeting location. The exact meeting location will be provided by your guide prior to your day of guiding. PLEASE NOTE: Petra Cliffs is not able to provide transportation to and from guiding meeting locations. 


  • Q: Should I tip my guide?

  • A: Gratuity for the guides is not included in the booking price. Tipping is an individual decision and you will receive top-notch service regardless, however our guides do accept and appreciate tips (most commonly via cash or venmo). It is customary to tip the guides at the end of the day, and we recommend tipping 10-20% of the trip price which is common in the climbing and skiing industry. Please note that you are under no obligation to tip, but it is highly recommended.


  • Q: What if I book a course or private guide and then have to cancel?

  • A: Cancellations require 10 days notice to receive a full refund of the total program cost. Cancellations with less than 10 days notice or no-shows will result in forfeit of full payment. If you must cancel, please email as soon as possible.
