Can I join a group climb as a single climber?
Yes, a solo climber can join any group climb, or even book their own private climb.
Is there a minimum number of climbers needed for a trip to depart?
No, all of our climbs are guaranteed to depart as soon as one climber has joined.
How many people will be in my group?
Our open group departures are capped at 12-15 people maximum. We have extensive experience arranging private tours, for solo climbers, small and large groups, as requested.
What is the minimum age that you can climb without an adult?
Climbers must be 18 years of age or over to climb alone. Climbers under 18 must have an adult accompany them on the climb. We recommend you book a private climb if you are traveling with children under 16. For children under 14 years, we will discuss inquiries on a case-by-case basis, depending on the experience level of the child and parent/guardian.
