Safety and a fun experience are top priorities in the mountains. At its core, safety means the adherence to important rules of conduct and instructions, as well as accurate tour planning and adequate equipment.
Climbing is ideal for those who want to strengthen their mental and physical fitness while having fun and enjoy a sense of community. That being said, climbing can be dangerous. Learn the skills you need the right way by taking a climbing course.
