Rock Climbing

Private / Semi-Private Guide

A Private or Semi-private day offers personalized instruction to augment your current skills or it can offer you a day of guided climbing on some of Skaha Bluffs' classic routes.

There are many positive reasons to hire an ACMG Guide either Privately or Semi-privately. If you have a mixed background of climbing experience, you'll benefit from a customized course that builds from your current skill base, focusing only on areas which need improvement. It enables you to cover a wide range of topics (top roping to lead climbing for example) at a pace that is comfortable to you. It also enables you to book a course date outside of our advertised course calendar. Or you may just be visiting the area and wish to maximize your climbing time in the Skaha Bluffs, so by using our local knowledge, we'll find you the best climbs to match your abilities. For whatever reason, we will customize a day to meet your specific goal requirements.
