Summit Camps

  • Summit Granite

    Take what you learned from the climbing wall to some real rock!

    Experience four days and three nights of incredible sights while climbing the face of a granite wall. Learn the basics of anchor building, belaying and knots and strengthen muscles you never knew you had. Under the guidance of trained staff, expect encouragement and insight as you become more comfortable with heights and safely maneuver your way to the top of Sierra’s peaks. Luckily, the view does not end there. After a full day of excitement you get to cool off in a river and camp out under a blanket of stars.
