Ting Ting was amazing! She\’s extremely knowledgeable and a wonderful guide. She helped me improve on rock climbing and was able to pick and choose routes depending on the needs of the people climbing. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a guide!

Amazing rock climbing adventure. Exactly what I was looking for and highly recommend!

I am still daydreaming about it!

I took the Women’s Weekend Rock Climbing Clinic recently and am still daydreaming about it! It was the first time that I took a group climbing class and loved the energy of all the ladies. I especially enjoyed hearing the stories about our guides, as they provided motivational and inspiring words to encourage us all. We experienced a variety of climbs, and the days just flew by! Elyse

It was a safe space to move at my own speed!
Ashley Brown (source: TripAdvisor)

I signed up for the Women’s Trad clinic to boost my confidence. I have a lapsed SPI and wanted to see just how much I remember and how safe my recreational climbing is. The clinic reinforced what I already know from the SPI, and gave me an environment that fostered my courage and confidence. I climb frequently with my husband and his peers who are all guides. In comparison to them, sometimes I feel slow and not as dialed. The Women’s Trad Clinic was a safe space to move at my own speed, test my own skills, and receive feedback in a way that felt appropriate and applicable. Overall an excellent experience, and just what I hoped for. Not to mention the group was kind and there was lots of laughter.

I had an amazing day, Ting Ting was a great guide. I wasn’t sure if I was asking too much ( I wanted to follow on multi-pitch and lead on some easy single pitch sport routes) but she fulfilled all of my requests. She was also very encouraging when I questioned whether or not I could do a harder route on the top rope, she seemed to know my limits better than I did.

Ting Ting was amazing – she made the experience awesome and we had a really good time. The climbing was perfect for our level of experience and the views were beautiful. Thank you so much, Ting Ting!

    Min. age requirements:

    • If you are older than 21, you’re good to go.

  • We highly recommend that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance.
