Rock climbing courses at the International Wilderness Leadership School are dedicated to developing confident, competent, climbers. Using a hands on approach to learning, we introduce new skills and put them to use on climbs that develop individual skill and technique. We have programs for everyone from those who want a fun initial rock climbing experience, to those seeking serious expedition skills appropriate for the most demanding high altitude climbs, or, individuals interested in solid professional training courses. Our small groups and low instructor to student ratio let us meet individual expectations, and allow you to progress as quickly as your ambition and ability allow.
This course is structured to give students a solid foundation of vertical climbing skills from a professional guiding perspective. Our rock climbing location hosts everything from easy top-rope climbs and difficult multi-pitch routes, to sweeping alpine faces.
High quality rock and uncommonly dry weather make this area a world-class destination. You may lead a day of top roping at a wilderness crag, practice aid techniques on a thin crack, or safely learn to place traditional protection on lead.
The Cajon de Arenales is an incredible alpine valley situated just an hour south of Mendoza. It has some of the highest quality granite in the area and offers a range of great crack climbs, tenuous sport routes, and long, multi-pitch alpine climbs.
