Climbing outdoors with your family is an amazing and rewarding experience. At Girth Hitch Guiding we believe it's within your reach to enjoy a safe family climbing experience in the mountains. If your kids are crushing it at the gym and want to take things outside, we can help launch your safe family climbing adventures. If you, as the parent, are passionate about climbing and sharing an experience with your family but aren't sure it's possible, Girth Hitch Guiding can help. Our family has been exploring crags in Western Canada and the States together since we had infant children. On this course we will focus on:

  • Managing expectations
  • Safety when climbing with children
  • External and internal hazard factors
  • Introducing you and your child to the wonderful world of outdoor climbing
  • Having fun
