Rock Climbing & Canyoneering 

Arguably the greatest way to explore the backcountry, our canyoneering trips will take you to places most Arizonans never get to see. From sliding down natural water slides, to rappelling down the sides of waterfalls, these trips are sure to be memorable. Trips include all instruction, guides, food and transportation along with group equipment. 

Come check out our day climbs. The perfect trip for those who've never climbed, we'll show you the basics of outdoor climbing. Trip price includes lunch, gear, guide, and transportation. 

Climbing Magazine named Tucson the best city for rock climbing in the USA – come find out why! We will be climbing on some of southern Arizona’s amazing granite walls in the Catalina Mountains on Mount Lemmon, specifically at a climbing crag called "The Havens". This will be a day trip up to Mount Lemmon, where we'll climb all day and have a picnic lunch outdoors. This trip is appropriate for people without previous outdoor climbing experience. Instruction will include: use and care of climbing equipment, safety systems, and rock climbing and belay technique.
