Top Rope Belay

Ever thought of being somewhere up high watching the sunrise upon the horizon? Or even the view of the whole landscape?

Well now you can by beginning your journey in learning how to climb!

Sport climbing is the fundamental aspect of rock climbing whereby beginners such as yourself can learn how to climb. Climbing can even provide a balance between improving your physical strength and endurance. Not to mention disciplining yourself mentally in defying gravity.

Do you know an hour of climbing can burn between 500 to 900 calories? That’s more than what you can make by running!

“Linda was wonderful!
She was clear and concise and despite the fact that I was a complete novice (I.e. noob), she never made me feel like I couldn’t do it. I felt safe and encouraged 🙂 I even completed climbing a wall for the first time.
She was clear with her feedback and and I left the course a lot more knowledgeable and a ton more excited about climbing.
Would definitely recommend Climb’O’Dachi and Linda if you’re planning on starting your climbing journey!”
