Crag Days

Join us for Gym to Crag Days

Try out the transition from gym to crag with the experts! Join N3C outside for an awesome outdoor experience at an unbeatable price. Each crag day is a little different, depending on the location and participants. On a typical day we will provide an introduction to outdoor climbing and will set up top ropes on a range of climbs that are appropriate difficulties for the participants of the group.

Although all are welcome, the Crag Days are aimed primarily at proficient indoor climbers looking to gain experience outdoors. If you feel that you don’t match this description you might find one of our other guiding options to be a better fit!

What Does Gym to Crag Mean?

Gym to Crag is a common phrase used to describe the transition from indoor gym climbing to climbing outside on real rock. Climbing outdoors involves more technical skills, and the climbing experience itself is different. There are no color-coded holds to follow, which can be more challenging to figure out on your own. Taking that step into outdoor climbing by yourself can be intimidating, so take that step with us!



Climbers who want to make the gym to crag transition under the leadership of an experienced AMGA certified instructor.


The plan is for a solid half-day of climbing on prescheduled dates throughout the season. We will meet at the prescribed climbing location at 2pm and plan on wrapping up climbing by 6pm or so. Remaining dates are listed for the 2023 season.


Locations will vary but will include amazing local crags such as Echo and Rumney. Previous locations have also included Mt Oscar, the Elephant Head, and even Cannon Cliff!

What to Bring

Water, snacks, and appropriate clothing for a day outside. All gear will be provided but participants are encouraged to bring their own if they have it.
