Chris’s Guide to Rock Climbing

Get your draws ready

Welcome to our (soon to be) ultimate guide to rock climbing. Rock climbing is a huge topic, but I’m going to share with you all the knowledge you need to get you off the ground in this incredible adventure! If you don’t know when to use a quad anchor vs a sliding X  or if you don’t know how to pick out the right rope, this guide is for you.

 I’ve seen too many climbers at the gym or the crag who know little beyond what they can observe from others in the area and I want to change that. 

This guide is here to help you be more prepared for your next climbing adventure. It will teach you all the skills, knowledge, and techniques and give you the motivation you need to get you off the couch and on belay.

The guide is under development, so check back often as we add additional content.
