Experience Courses

 

Experience courses are designed for first-time climbers who want to give rock climbing a try without the time commitment of a more in-depth course, or for experienced climbers with a limited schedule. Individuals, families, and large groups routinely sign up for these courses. The focus is less on instruction and more on the experience.

If rock climbing is just one of several activities you want to experience while on vacation in Acadia, then The Climbing Experience, our half day course, or its variants, is a perfect choice.
