Guiding FAQs

What do I need to go climbing outside?

Loose fitting clothes appropriate for the
season, day/back pack to carry personal gear and some climbing equipment (harness, helmet, shoes, some community gear), water bottle, food/snacks, bug repellant, sun screen, closed toed shoes for the approach. Rocksport can provide all climbing equipment at no extra charge.

How should I plan on getting there?

Rocksport does not provide transportation. The areas we frequent are 20-40
minutes away.

Where do you go?

The southern Lake George Basin is home to many fine cliffs a short distance from the gym. A swim in Lake George is always a fine after climb activity. The High Peaks and the huge concentration of fine climbs are less than an hour away.

What if I've never climbed before?

There are several areas that have gentle challenges for the beginning climber.

What kinds of climbing do you guide?

We do half and full day guiding on one pitch crags, multipitch climbs on some of the bigger cliffs. We especially like to teach skills in an individual and small group settings.
