Learn the basics of outdoor rock climbing with professional guides! This is Northeast Mountain Guiding‘s most popular course and participants always go back for more! You must be 8 years of age or older to participate in this course.
The day kicks off on the grounds of Allamuchy Mountain State Park (40°55’10.7″N 74°44’57.2″W), where we’ll go over basic climbing gear, movement on the rock/climbing techniques, balance, body positioning, and knots.
