Summer Climbing Classes

Bring out your inner adrenaline junkie and test yourself on the faces of the Rimrocks surrounding Billings.  If you’ve ever been interested in rock climbing, our expert instructor will lead the way.  Jim Rott from STEEPWORLD Climbing & Fitness will be teaching a variety of weekday and weekend class times throughout the summer, providing ample opportunity to jump in to one or more of these classes.  Designed to cover all the skills required to set up basic roped climbing, these classes will take place in the established climbing areas above Gregory Hills. The class is for 13 years and older with parent child participation encouraged.

We will be offering two class types. Single day class focused on getting you on the wall and a two day class which will dive deeper into the basics of rock climbing. Two day classes will meet on the first day at STEEPWORLD Climbing & Fitness. The second day of class will be held on the Rims.

Single day classes will meet at the Park easement in Rockwood Circle. Shoe and waist sizes will be needed prior to the class to ensure required equipment fits properly. Participants should arrive 15 minutes prior to class time for gear distribution and a brief description of the course activities.  Be prepared for a short hike up a steep hill and 3+ hours in the great outdoors right here in town.

If you have questions, please call STEEPWORLD Climbing & Fitness or Billings Parks and Recreation.
