The problem is the way climbing is promoted. And everything says, you're not welcome.
So, let's start by throwing out a few myths that have probably kept you away:
MYTH #1. You have to look a certain way to climb.
As long as you're comfortable and are willing to try, you look great.
MYTH #2. You have to talk like an insider to climb.
If you can point up and point down, you can climb.
MYTH #3. You need a ton of expensive, fancy equipment to climb.
Rent it, and you can climb.
And no, climbing does not always mean to the top of a mountain with a rope and harness. You can climb boulders (bouldering), trees (tree climbing) and man-made structures (buildering).
On this trip, you'll visit a world-class boulder climbing area where a Trip Host will demonstrate safe climbing and basic techniques in a friendly and respectful way so that you feel (and look) awesome climbing!
Your Trip Host isn't a guide or instructor on this trip. They're there to a create judgement-free and supportive space for you and your group to have an amazing climbing experience!

Although you're able to climb in almost any footwear you own, climbing-specific shoes are actually pretty helpful if you're able to purchase them. If you can't purchase, you can likely rent them for the day from your local climbing gym.
