Rock Climbing Skills Day with SYMG

Rock Climbing with Southern Yosemite Mountain Guides

Take your skills and technique a step further with a private rock climbing instruction. We will create a custom 8-hr class for you based on your own interests, abilities and experience. Learn about placing gear, building anchors, professional safety standards, advanced climbing techniques, rescue skills, multipitch systems or any number of other focuses.

  • Beginner - Advanced
  • Trip Length - 9am to 5pm
  • Group Size - up to 6 guests
  • Learn techniques and skills to transition from gym to crag
  • Practice gear placements and anchor building under the supervision of our certified Rock Guides
  • Enjoy the incredible climbing on granite domes of Southern Yosemite

Meet Your Rock Guide:  Meet your guide in Oakhurst, CA at the designated meeting location. You'll follow your guide in your vehicle to the climbing sites (all roads are accessible with a two-wheel drive vehicle, though an SUV style vehicle may be more comfortable on the dirt roads). All climbs are catered to your own abilities and interests. Tell your guide your goals and they will do their best to meet your needs. Some possible options are: 

  • An introductory day of climbing at the tranquil Willow Creek Wall. Spend the day learning footwork, belaying, or knots at a tranquil crag away from the crowds.
  • Adventure out to Fresno Dome for a day of awe inspiring climbing above tree-line. Spend the day mastering the basics of multi-pitch lead climbing on some of the shorter routes or challenge yourself with climbs up to 600 feet. Fresno Dome is also great for learning gear placement, anchor building, and for self-rescue clinics.
  • A refreshing escape to the high country cliffs of Shuteye Ridge. These steep granite crags offer opportunities for all climbers to work on climbing technique and push their strength to the next level, whether it is 5.7 or 5.14.

Gear:

  • We provide all ropes & climbing protection. We can also provide the following upon request (included in your trip cost):  Rock climbing shoes, harnesses, & helmets

Your SYMG Guide:

  • Our professional rock climbing guides have spent years perfecting their climbing skills in and around Yosemite and hold relevant certifications. All of our guides are exceptionally personable individuals who look forward to not only teaching and guiding you in these spectacular locations, but getting to know you as well.

See website for full info and booking.

Travel & Logistics:  SYMG rock days begin with meeting your guide in Oakhurst, CA at a convenient location just off of highway 41. We meet in Oakhurst so that you can follow your guide to the climbing sites, since these sites can be a bit tricky to find if you haven't been there before. Detailed directions will be sent to you upon registration.

Preparation:  No experience required! We cater to all levels of physical and technical proficiency.

  • A warm layer and/or rainshell
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen

Wear comfortable and moisture wicking clothing (especially for the warm summer months of July-August). Comfortable hiking/running shoes are the best option for footwear when you aren't climbing. It's important to check the weather prior to your day to make sure you're dressing appropriately- check out our favorite weather forecast here
