Our Intro Rock Climbing days are a great way to spend time with your family, significant other, or to just go on a new adventure. Designed for anyone who wants to experience rock climbing outdoors, a climbing day with NCOA will grow your mental and physical strengths. The best part is always climbing to the summit, which will give you a feeling of accomplishment accompanied by breathtaking views that truly puts you in the moment.
A typical climbing day starts with an introduction to your North Carolina Outdoor Adventures guide followed by a brief hike through the Linville Gorge Wilderness area in Marion, N.C. to beautiful granite walls ranging from 40 to 120 ft tall. Once the ropes are hung you will get to take turns climbing the wall, learning climbing specific body movements, lingo, and safety techniques. We will take a short break for lunch and snacks before going back at it.
Who is this for? Anyone with a good sense of adventure. No prior experience needed.
What to Bring: Bring a good pair of shoes to hike in, 2-3L of water, lunch/snacks, sunscreen, camera, small backpack, and when necessary a rain jacket. .
