Day Climbs

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. 

Mt Lemmon holds one of the highest concentration of climbs in the world! With over 2,000 crags to explore you'll never run out of places to climb in Tucson. Join us for the day on one of the low mountain crags at Crags Against Humanity. Whether you've never climbed before or looking to make the transition from the gym to outdoor climbing, we'll teach you every step of the way. Transportation, climbing gear, lunch, and instruction are all included.

Looking out from the Seven Cataracts overlook on the Catalina Highway you can see a series of waterfalls descending steeply across the canyon. Have you ever wanted to rappel down those waterfalls? Now you can! Join us for this exciting, adventurous, and challenging descent of Willow Canyon. We will bushwhack into the canyon from just above Windy Point, hike through several miles of the isolated creek bed, then reach a series of 100+ foot rappels over the Seven Cataracts, before a final steep hike back up the Catalina Highway. A full day of high adventure right in our own back yard!
