Guided Multipitch Climbing

Reaching new heights

Join a local queer guide on a multipitch route and enjoy the best views around!

Multipitch routes are too tall to climb in a single rope length, so climbers use different strategies to incrementally ascend the rock. 

Our guided multipitch climbing days are completely customized to your goals, fitness, and experience; they're also an opportunity to learn new skills and take your own adventures to the next level.
