Join North Coast Adventure Centers for the big rappel and rock climb on the beach and along the bluffs of the North Coast---Humboldt at its best! Learn the basics of rappelling, climbing, and belaying. Whether you are bouldering or top-roping, our knowledgeable trainers will help you gain the experience and skill necessary for all your climbing journeys.
Our trips are great as a two person tour, for small groups, families, and individuals. Our 1/2 day rappelling and rock climbing program runs for about 3-4 hours. Trips meet at Far North Climbing Gym at 10th and K Street in Arcata. After a brief meeting and paperwork we head to our rock climbing site and begin our safety orientation (We'll give you a map so you don't get lost and can leave directly from the rock (It's only 15-20 minutes away). We'll teach you how to safely rappel, belay climbers and give you tips on basic climbing techniques up to 70 feet. If your arms are up for it, we will take you to some of our prime bouldering spots where you will learn how to safely traverse rock just 6-10 feet off the ground.
