Climbers, join us for a day on the rock at one of the best climbing spots in the Bay Area, Castle Rock State Park!
Beyond basics climbing days are full days and appropriate for climbers of any skill level who can tie in and belay competently and confidently at the start of the day. It doesn't matter if you climb 5.6 or 5.11, we'll get you set up on climbs that challenge you and help you develop your skills. We'll focus on getting as many climbs in as possible during the day. Your Outdoor Adventure Club guide will give you tips and instruction throughout the day to coach you through the climbs.
Indoor climbers, this is a great opportunity to take your gym skills and apply them to real rock! Castle Rock offers remote and beautiful climbing in the 5.6-5.11 level. The park has many climbing areas including the famed Goat Rock, Castle Rock, Cal Cliffs, the Underworld, and the Waterfalls. Our guides will determine where you climb based on the the overall experience of the group.
Group size will be limited to a maximum of 6 climbers per guide, so early sign up is advised. The trip lasts from 8:30 am to approximately 5:00 pm, longer than any other guide service. After climbing you can grab some food with your fellow climbers in Saratoga. It's a perfect way to finish the day, trade stories from your climbs, and develop new friendships.
Why climb with the Outdoor Adventure Club?
In a word, or four, we are professional guides. We've been teaching the Bay Area to climb since 1996. You are spending the day with a guide trained by the American Mountain Guides Association, and certified as Wilderness First Responders.
Unlike some "adventure" groups, we don't contract out our climbing. We are your guides. Our focus is not only on taking you out and letting you climb, but setting up the safest climbing situations, and teaching you in a very patient, supportive and friendly manner. Besides safety, OAC guides are knowledgeable of the climbing scene, and eager to help you develop your climbing skills.
Also, unlike other outfitters who offer shorter climbing days with much less time on the rope, we keep going! When you climb with us, you'll get a full day of climbing in. We've seen some discount climbing companies packing up at 1:00, while we're moving to our second location for the day. And we don't just send you up the rope, we teach you to climb. We love climbing!
