This day is geared to get you hooked on the sport.  We understand that different people have different goals.  Some folks like to learn every details: rappelling, knots, belay technique, anchor systems.  Others are more interested in the experience and are ready to try something new.  Our guides will keep you safe, both physically and emotionally while you learn the ropes.  If you are considering this trip, you might also be interested in our full day top rope and multi pitch trips.
