Are you tired of climbing inside instead of touching real rock under the sun? Or maybe you already enjoy clipping bolts inside but want to transition outside, or even start placing your own gear. Either way, the Outdoor Ascent Series, in partnership with The Backcountry Pros, is for you!  

This program features several classes that cover outdoor sport climbing fundamentals such as cleaning anchors, lowering, rappelling and multi-pitch sport climbing, as well as outdoor top-roping and an introduction to trad climbing.  

Each course will begin with learning and practicing basics in the gym, then The Backcountry Pros will take attendees outside to apply newly learned skills. The Pros are a Salt Lake City-based guiding company led by highly skilled industry professionals who have dedicated their lives to mountain adventures. After a day with their staff and ours, you’ll feel a major confidence boost for your next stage of climbing.  

Each course is $150 for Front members and $175 for non-members. The courses are broken up into three days and include four hours of indoor instruction at The Front and four hours of outdoor instruction. The only exception is Intro to Trad Climbing, which is two days and has two hours of indoor instruction and six hours outside.  

So, bring your stoke and bring your friends for fun-filled, educational days in the gym and under the sun! The next stage of your climbing aspirations awaits you… sign up on our climbing classes page today
