Fox Mountain Guides offers rock climbing day trips throughout Western North Carolina and across the Southeast 12 months a year. These are custom trips that cater to everyone from beginning climbers looking to try rock climbing for the first time to Boy Scout groups seeking to fulfill rock climbing merit badge requirements and intermediate and advanced climbers who want to climb multi-pitch routes.
Beginner’s Rock Climbing Trips
Beginner’s trips are for people who have never tried outdoor rock climbing. Whether you are completely new to climbing or lead 5.12 in a gym but have never experienced climbing on real rock, our AMGA certified instructors will introduce you to the world of outdoor rock climbing.
Who it’s for:
Everyone, seven years old and up. No experience necessary. All equipment provided.
Can be a Half Day (4 hours), Full Day (8 hours), or a Two Hour Lesson (Chimney Rock Park location only).
From $85 each for a Full Day Group Rate based on five or more. Click here to see a complete list of our prices.
With the exception of two hour lessons at Chimney Rock Park, all guided day trips are “one on one” with a guide unless you organize to bring friends or family with you.
Intermediate/Advanced Climbing Trips
Intermediate trips are for those people who have previous experience climbing outdoors. These trips can be anything from single pitch climbs where clients are refining their outdoor climbing skills to multi-pitch climbs where clients are literally taking their climbing to a higher level.
Who it’s for:
Anyone with previous OUTDOOR climbing experience. All equipment provided.
Can be a Half Day (4 hours) or Full Day (8 hours).
From $175 for each person (based on a group of three). Click here to see a complete list of our prices.
All guided trips are “one on one” with a guide unless you organize to bring friends or family with you. Multi-pitch guiding has a limit of three participants to one guide, for more than three we can arrange additional guides for your party.
