Last month, we joined CRAG-VT for the 3rd annual Vermont Climbing Festival. The festival featured camping, climbing, workshops, clinics, competitions, speakers, music, and more. It was so fun to hold an outdoor gathering again, and we are looking forward to next year!
If you are looking to gain technical and communication skills to start climbing outside this season, “Transition to Outdoor Climbing” may be for you. We will cover the basics and get you assimilated to what you may encounter and skills you will want when climbing outside. This evening and following day clinic is a great introduction to becoming comfortable climbing outdoors.
Come join us on March 27th at 10am to dive into body prep drills and exercises to warm up for climbing. Sarah and Brittany will be covering ways that you can decrease your risk for injuries and optimize your body for climbing.
Have you ever wondered what it might be like to spend a day with a climbing guide? Has climbing been something you have been looking to try but never knew where to start? Hiring a guide often provides an experience that is quite different than going out recreationally with your friends, with more attention to your goals and objectives.
Interested in Ice Climbing but don't have the gear, or know anyone that does that you could borrow? Or maybe you'd like to learn from a professional that can help you with the learning curve? Consider signing up for our Women's Ice Climbing Course either February 28th or March 7th and all the gear is included :)
With all the good snow Vermont has received, consider brushing up on those skills to help get you more knowledgeable out in the backcountry. The AIARE Avalanche Rescue is a one-day stand alone course that is intended to be retaken on a regular basis in order to keep abreast of best practices in rescue techniques and gear.
These soft, fleecy hoodies and dresses are your cozy companion for lounging, ski tours, working from home- you name it. We have a handful left and they would be much happier on your body than on our shelves!
Zack first started climbing during his time at Colgate University and devoted much of his time to the Outdoor Education program. When he wasn’t struggling on physics problem sets, he was leading other students on trips throughout the country while also establishing a firm devotion to the states in the upper right corner.
Interested in the backcountry and looking to move into the bigger terrain? We just had 1 spot open up for this weekend's 3-day Avalanche Course. Gain the tools to understanding avalanche terrain and what potential rescue procedures are incase the need arises.
