Outdoor top rope anchor building and multi-pitch climbing courses for the spring?

Hi all, Jaron (the previous organizer for those of you who joined recently) put me in touch with Paul Curran who runs Vertical Gains, an outdoor climbing school. In the past he has done top rope anchor building courses with Vedge with a generous discount of 20% off his regular rates.

I know spring seems super far away considering how cold it's been yesterday and today, but it will be here before you know it and these classes book up pretty quickly once the weather turns. I'd like to look into scheduling a top rope anchor building class and a multi-pitch climbing class for two different Sundays in April or May if Vedge members are interested.

Up to four people can take the top rope anchor course and two can take the multi-pitch course. The only requirements for these courses is that you are already belay certified. Bonus points if you know how to lead and rappel, but not a big deal if you don't.

Here's the breakdown of prices (discounts already applied):

Top rope anchor building: $120 for the class + $17 climbing pass to Mohonk Preserve. If someone has a car, great, if not, it's about $100 to rent one for a day from NYC, so another $25 or so for shared car rental. With car rental the price is about $162.

Multi-pitch climbing: $180 for the class + $17 climbing pass to Mohonk Preserve. Same with the rental car, only it'd be about $50 as only two people can do this course. With car rental the price is about $247.

Reply to this message to contact me directly if this is something you'd like to do.

Climb on!
