Are you an experienced gym climber looking to take the leap into outdoor climbing? If you are lead certified at a local gym and ready to take your climbing to the next level, join like-minded individuals and our professional climbing guides on an epic road trip to Rumney. Your guides will meet you at a Boston-area REI store location and transport you to the White Mountains in our spacious van. At Rumney, you'll get a full day of climbing instruction (with a 3:1 client to guide ratio) focused on route finding, properly clipping bolts, constructing sport anchors, and cleaning climbs while on mock lead. REI will provide transportation and all the gear necessary for lead climbing outdoors. Also included in the cost of the course is your White Mountain National Forest pass.
