This group is primarily geared toward folks with limited or no climbing experience although some of the routes can challenge those with experience. Always wanted to rock climb or rappel but never had the chance? Well now you do! I have all the gear required. We typically meet at Raven's Roost near Humpback rock on the Skyline Drive. No hike is involved. However, there is a short but steep scramble from the bottom of the cliff back to the top. For climbing, we'll be top roping which means all climbers will be tied into a harness with a rope anchor at the top and a belayer below protecting the climber from a fall - the safest type of rock climbing. As would be expected with this type of activity, a liability waiver is mandatory.
If you are interested in more advanced techniques and skills associated with climbing, I definitely recommend Blue Ridge Mountain Guides who can be reached at the website below.
