Multi-Pitch Climbing

Guided Multi-Pitch Rock Climbing

North Carolina has some of the best granite (vertical faces and domes) for traditional multi-pitch climbing. Spend the day on the side of a rock face while enjoying spectacular scenery and improving your climbing skills. Learn about traditional gear placement and removal, hanging belays (cordelettes), and practice more technical movement on rock. Routes range from 150 – 600 feet. Single-pitch guiding is also possible. Consider booking a weekday outing for a less crowded experience.
