North Carolina Outdoor Adventures
  • Reach all your climbing goals with an expert guide and let them show you how to brush up on your climbing skills!

    • 57hours is committed to providing safe outdoor adventure experiences. We require all guides using our platform to have a COVID-19 safety plan and to make the details of that plan accessible to travelers. In most cases, group sizes will be reduced, guides will avoid overcrowded locations, and other safety measures will be met depending on the location and activity. 

      We also expect clients to respect local regulations and take measures to protect themselves, guides and the communities they’re traveling to. For more information on COVID-19 measures in North Carolina, please refer to the Official Website of the State of North Carolina and  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

      Please contact us if you have any questions or require further information. We are happy to provide you with the most up-to-date information!

    • What you get on this adventure:

        • An experienced, local rock climbing guide with extensive knowledge of the area
        • A half or full day of rock climbing depending on your chosen itinerary
        • Technical rock climbing equipment

      What’s not included:

        • Transportation 
        • Accommodations
        • Meals and snacks
    • If you can climb a ladder, you’re good to go. Being in good shape is always a plus but far from necessary. Rock climbing is all about using good movement technique rather than muscling up a cliff using brute strength. To ensure you have a fun day, your guide will choose routes that best suit your skill and fitness level.

    • North Carolina has plenty of options for beginner climbers. Whether you’ve never climbed before or are transitioning from the gym to outdoor climbing, your guide will customize the day to suit your skill level and objectives. With a guide by your side, you’ll learn something new, stay safe on the rocks, and most importantly, have fun!

      For intermediate to advanced climbers, North Carolina has loads of routes to spend the day on. Your guide will discuss your objectives and customize the day to your goals. Let your guide plan the day so you can focus on developing your skills while climbing the classic routes or best hidden gems the area has to offer. The multi-pitch climbing adventure requires you to have experience and be comfortable with top rope climbing 5.7 or harder climbs.

    • All technical climbing equipment will be provided by your guiding service. However, if you have your own gear, feel free to bring it. You’ll need:

        • Helmet
        • Harness with a locking carabiner, belay device, and chalk bag
        • Ropes
        • Rock shoes
        • Climbing hardware (quickdraws, cam devices, stoppers, etc.)

      Here’s a list of the equipment we suggest you bring:

        • Day pack large enough to carry all the items listed
        • Water bottle (2-3 L)
        • Lunch and food you can eat on-the-go
        • Hiking shoes
        • Rain jacket
        • Toiletries (sunscreen, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)
        • Sunglasses
        • Camera — optional

      Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans.

        • The max. guest-to-guide ratio for the multi-pitch adventure is 2:1.
