Gym To Crag


The Gym to Crag class will teach students the basic skills needed to climb safely at a simple pre-
bolted outdoor single-pitch sport route. This class will only be provided to students who have
demonstrated the skills necessary to lead climb indoors at planet rock. Students must provide their
own personal anchor system and at least three locking carabineers (see a planet rock team member
for further information). If you can climb multiple lead routes at a rating of 5.10 or above and you are
thinking about climbing outside, the gym to crag class is the next adventure for you. There will be an
evaluation at the start of your lesson wherein your instructor will determine if you are ready for this
class. If you are not ready at that time, you will not receive a refund so make sure you fit all the
qualifications before you schedule your lesson. Feel free to discuss your qualifications for the class
with any staff member before you register.
