Climbing School Update



The 2019 Climbing School will start May 1, 2019.
Please see this page for the most up-to-date info

Course Objectives: Beginner through intermediate students will learn the fundamentals of single-pitch rock climbing. The five-week course, taught by an AMGA certified Single-Pitch Instructor, will cover fundamentals of top-roping, anchor building, climbing technique & movement, rappel, and sport lead climbing. Students will be required to provide a minimum amount of climbing equipment (see Minimum Equipment Requirements). This equipment is necessary to participate in the class, and detailed instruction will be provided throughout the course. The combination of selected equipment and course instruction are tailored to meet all current climbing-industry standards and best practices, and will prepare students to participate in LAM single-pitch outings in the Northern New Mexico area.

The class fills quickly with only 24 seats, so early registration is recommended.

This includes 4 Wed nights, and 5 Saturdays; some 36-40 hours of instruction. The Los Alamos Mountaineers Climbing School is a great way to learn about technical rock climbing and mountaineering.  The school should offer a good experience to:

  • beginning climbers with no climbing experience,
  • new climbers who want to gain experience,
  • climbers who need outdoor experience and instruction, and
  • anyone wanting a chance to tap into the expertise of some of the area's most experienced climbers.
