Join us and take the next step in your climbing journey!

Intro to Trad Climbing

Best For: Climbers who have some lead experience. Sport climbing experience can be helpful but is not required.

Many of the best climbs in the White Mountains, especially the long adventures, have few or no bolts. Accessing this terrain requires knowing how to place your own protection, as well as when and where. Whether you’re totally new to traditional (“trad”) climbing and need to learn the basics, or have some experience already and just want an expert eye to critique your placements, we can help you take the next step in your trad climbing career!

Prerequisites: Some experience lead climbing, either indoors or outdoors. Prior outdoor climbing experience is recommended.

Intro to Multipitch Climbing

Best For: Climbers with outdoor lead experience looking to start accessing longer climbs.

Some goals are longer than a rope length. These multi-pitch routes require advanced skill sets such as anchor building, route finding, and belaying from above that can be difficult to acquire on single pitch climbs. And that’s before we even talk about the different risk management decisions that need to be made when you commit to multi-pitch climbs. Don’t struggle through the steep learning curve of multi-pitch climbing alone. Let N3C’s skilled instructors accelerate your progress and help you achieve your climbing goals faster and better.

Prerequisites: Some experience lead climbing, either indoors or outdoors. Prior outdoor climbing experience is recommended. Let us know if your goal is trad or sport multipitch climbing.

Advanced Skills Development

Best For: Climbers looking to develop skills that don’t fit neatly into one of our other courses.

Not every skill that you might want to learn fits neatly into one our courses, but that doesn’t mean we can’t help! Self rescue skills, top rope anchors, facing your fear of falling, whatever you need to work on we’re happy to help!
