Gym to Trad

From plastic to tradtastic!

Quick Details

Per person 1:4 Climber to Instructor ratio!

Feel Confident on Real Rock with Trad Gear

We were chatting with some friends at MetroRock down in MA recently and came up with an idea. Why not have climbers start our 3 day trad climbing program in the gyms during the week, and then travel to NH for the weekend to complete the course?

Thus, the Gym to Trad course was born! MetroRock’s guides will start the process in the Everett location to teach some basic anchor building and rappel skills. That weekend, head to North Conway to meet up with IMCS guides to hit the rock. You’ll learn to place gear, do some mock leads, and by the end of the weekend have a solid foundation for your first lead!

This program is intended for climbers with some outdoor climbing experience. Gym or sport lead climbing skills are helpful, but not necessary!
