Intro to rock climbing instruction course Leavenworth Mountain Madness guide

Leavenworth Basic Rock Course

Instruction in one of Washington’s finest climbing venues

Leav­en­worth, Wash­ing­ton is a per­fect set­ting for this climb­ing school for begin­ner rock climbers with lit­tle or no expe­ri­ence, or tran­si­tion­ing from gym climb­ing to the out­doors. Our guides lead the way as they teach you how to set-up top ropes, rap­pel, and lots of climb­ing! Our three-day immer­sion course intro­duces lead climbing. 

We begin with fric­tion climb­ing to devel­op your bal­ance, and then incor­po­rate both face and crack climb­ing tech­niques before pro­gress­ing to more chal­leng­ing climbs. You will learn stan­dard climb­ing pro­to­cols under the guid­ance of expe­ri­enced and sup­port­ive instruc­tors. Equip­ment, belays, anchors, knots, rap­pelling and low­er­ing are all thor­ough­ly cov­ered. An addi­tion­al objec­tive of this class is for stu­dents to be able to eval­u­ate and set up their own top ropes.

Add a third day to learn lead climb­ing with either tra­di­tion­al gear or sport climb­ing, OR add two days and climb Lib­er­ty Bell Moun­tain with our Alpine Rock Course! And if you are ready to take it to the next lev­el, the Inter­me­di­ate Rock Course will do just that!
