Boston Rock Climbing Program

Trip dates:
Wednesday, March 15, 2017 12:00 AM to Sunday, May 7, 2017 12:00 AM

Rock climbing provides the exhilaration of conquering a crag, but also the puzzle of figuring out a sequence of moves to climb a difficult section. You can experience the rewards and challenges of rock climbing by taking the Boston Mountaineering Committee's Rock Climbing Program! This program covers the basic skills to climb safely: toprope anchor building, belaying, ascending, and rappelling. The emphasis of the course is learning to safely follow a leader on multipitch trad climbs. No prior experience is necessary. You will learn from our experienced volunteer instructors and meet other aspiring and enthusiastic rock climbers!

The program will have two sessions at Cabot Hall: an optional information session on March 15 from 7-8pm, and a required Knots night on March 29 from 7-9pm. The program weekends are held in the Blue Hills reservation. The first program weekend is April 8 and 9 (both days required); you may attend either day of the remaining program weekends: April 22/23, April 29/30, and May 6/7. If you do not have a climbing harness or helmet (required), they may be borrowed at no cost (with a deposit). Online registration will open in March. For more information, see
