Baker Mountain Guides Gym to Crag Course is designed to provide our students with a foundational understanding of anchors, cleaning and rappelling, and crag specific considerations. We tailor this course to each individual student by building upon extant skills and operating at common weekend destinations. Students will adapt their climbing gym movement skill to the outdoor realm and develop the autonomy to return on their own.

Baker Mountain Guides custom course flow adapts to each climber. We build upon our students existing skills in order to provide everyone with the most pertinent information. Our local knowledge will foster your growth.
