We ask that you wear close-toed shoes (hiking boots or sturdy sneakers). For your safety, no sandals or flip flops will be permitted. Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for the season, but avoid loose clothing that could tangle in ropes or other gear. Skirts should be avoided, and we also suggest avoiding short shorts for your comfort. On rainy or windy days, bring a light jacket or wind-breaker. For colder days, long pants, wool socks, and fleece are good items to bring. In late fall and early spring months, it is better to come with too many articles of clothing than to come without enough.
We run our trips rain or shine, so plan accordingly. Some things to consider bringing are: a hat or balaclava that will fit under a climbing helmet, wool or Polypropylene long underwear top and bottom, insulated ski jacket or layers of fleece with a weatherproof shell, thin glove liners, and wool socks. Bring any required medications as well as extra money for souvenirs, coin-operated showers, etc.
Guests will be asked to remove all items from their pockets before going on the tour, as we will not go back to obtain any articles lost along the course. Additionally, if you plan on bringing a camera, smaller cameras with a lanyard are best. If you bring your phone to take pictures you run the risk of dropping or otherwise damaging your phone. Please leave valuables in the car while you're on the tour. We can store your car keys for you while you are on the tour.
