Who it is for

Anyone that is interested in trying out rock climbing for the first time or considering signing up for Intro to Outdoor Rock Climbing: Module 1


Pre-requisites

No rock climbing or outdoor experience is required. All fitness levels are welcome

The lesson is best suited for adults and teenagers over 13 years of age, as the student will need to belay an adult instructor and general similarity in weight is required. A child that is well below an adult weight would not be able to safely belay an adult partner. However, a child could take the lesson if they sign up together with an adult who would belay during the lesson

You choose the day and time of the lesson - can be during the week, the weekend or on a holiday!

Climb more...

Five of the eight lessons in our course take place on long, multi-pitch routes. We don’t set up a top-rope to practice a technique - rather, we take you to a long route that has the characteristics suitable for the intended practice

...in more places...

Besides the mountains in Urca - Babilonia, Morro da Urca and Sugarloaf - we also take you to Contraforte do Corcovado, Cantagalo, Chamine do Prego, Plato da Lagoa and Pedra do Urubu. In fact, no two lessons are in the same location!

…on routes chosen just for you

Other courses take all their students to the same pre-selected routes. We, however, always choose the routes according to your abilities. We aim to challenge you, at the right level. As such, you learn better and evolve faster!
