We specialize in rock climbing classes for individuals and groups at our home base in the Sierra Nevada area of Mammoth Lakes near Yosemite. California has probably the best rock climbing in the world and Mammoth is one of the top rock climbing destinations just down the road from the Eastern entrance to Yosemite. And just like Yosemite, Mammoth rock climbing is world class. Our rock climbing classes are focused on training in a fun environment. We cater to groups and individuals who are simply looking to get out and experience rock climbing as well as those looking to have in-depth training in climbing.

Our local Mammoth rock climbing guides are professionals trained by the American Mountain Guides Association, the premier mountain guide training organization in the United States and the only rock climbing guide organization recognized by the International Federation of Mountain Guides Association. 

Climbers who have completed our rock climbing classes in Mammoth come away with an excellent understanding of climbing principles - whether a beginner climber or someone learning to lead traditional rock climbs. Our rock climbing classes are taught with the belief that rock climbing training is the foundation of all alpine climbing and mountaineering skills.
