This 3 day, 2 night Indian Creek Crack Climbing Camp is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience
Under the supervision of rock guides local to the desert Southwest, you will refine your crack climbing technique at the world-class climbing location, Indian Creek. “The Creek” as it’s affectionately known, is one of the best training grounds for learning to crack climb and refine your traditional lead climbing technique in the world. Boasting an endless amount of splitter desert cracks in a backdrop straight out of National Geographic, The Creek is sure to steal your heart. Every year during the fall and spring we migrate to Indian Creek to send the perfect sandstone walls and desert towers with our guests and on personal trips. It is truly one of our favorite places to climb.
Our Indian Creek Crack Climbing camp brings a community of people from all climbing abilities together for an immersive 3 days and 2 nights of desert climbing baptism. This program is designed to teach you proper climbing techniques and work with you on an individual level to progress beyond your current ability.
The days are full of climbing and coaching while the evenings are reserved for social time while our dedicated team prepares dinner under a sky littered with stars. After three days of this routine you will leave a more confident crack climber, scouring your calendar for a free weekend to come back and put what you learned to use.

Meet at 8:00 a.m. The first day will consist of a basic orientation on what is to come and will quickly transition to supervised climbing for the remainder of the day. Our instructors will work with you to refresh your skills and begin coaching you on how to improve your technique. This day will allow you to meet the crew you will be spending three days with and find a rhythm to your own style of climbing. We will wrap up the day by traveling to our reserved group campsite.
We will coordinate cars to drive to our respective crags for the day to minimize our impact on the already limited parking opportunities. Once at the crag you will continue to build upon the previous day’s lessons. This is a day to push yourselves more and begin lead climbing if you are feeling up to it. Throughout the day we will be demonstrating and coaching you individually to give you quality feedback on how to improve based on the goals we defined the day before.
This is our final day and we begin with an early breakfast followed by packing up camp. We will leave camp in all our personal cars and re-group at a large parking area where we will once again get into our carpool groups and roll to our last climbing crag. This is our final day to climb hard and take falls so leave it all in Indian Creek and try to achieve your climbing goals. The sandstone is calling your name.
