Climb El Capitan
4 DAY TRIP
April - November
Do you have the desire to climb El Capitan, or any other big walls? This course is designed to help you go from a lead climber to a big wall climber. Our guides have significant experience climbing big walls, and we look forward to sharing that with you. There is so much that goes into a big wall climb that this course is a 4-day program. The days can be back-to-back, or you can schedule them as two 2-day programs.
