CityROCK and Pikes Peak Alpine School have teamed up to offer CityROCK members and guests ways to start climbing outdoors.
Take your indoor climbing skills outdoors with this 2-part class. You’ll spend 3 hours here at CityROCK with a PPAS guide before heading outside for an 8 hour day climbing at one of our local crags.
Participants MUST know how to top rope belay. If you do not, you must take a belay class prior to registering for GTC.
This is not a beginner class.
