Private Rock Climbing Instruction

The Fast Track to Learning All the Rock Climbing Skills You Need.

A day of private rock climbing instruction is arguably the best way to accelerate your rock climbing skill and confidence.  Spend either a full or half-day with a highly trained and experienced rock climbing guide to cover whatever you feel is missing from your skill artillery.

Choose the day, arrange a group (or just you!), and we'll connect you with a guide to discuss your objectives.  We'll make sure you are feeling dialed and ready before the day is through.  Whether you are new to climbing or looking to improve your confidence in harder leads, we can help.

I contacted five companies about setting up a custom mountaineering trip and Altus immediately got back to me with all sorts of helpful, informative details. They were much easier and better to work with than all the other companies.

I felt safe and secure, and I learned a ton. Great objective, great weather, great food, and great company - it doesn't get any better than this! Can't wait to get back out there with the Altus guides - don't leave home without 'em!
