Guided Climbs at Yosemite

Whether you’re a novice climber or have years of experience, with a Yosemite rock climbing guide, you can grow your skills and discover the beauty and challenges of climbing in the Park.  

At Yosemite Mountaineering School, all of our guided climbs are really private lessons. In other words, your Yosemite climbing guide will give you as much information as possible along the way. Private lessons are a great way to get focused individual attention, where you determine the ratio of climbing to instruction. Reservations may be necessary and are always very helpful. At peak season our Yosemite climbing guides may be booked full several weeks in advance. Prices are based on the duration of the outing and the number of people in your group.
