QUEER OUTDOOR ROCK
In partnership with GOATS (Gayest Climbers of All Time), we're offering our first outdoor rock climbing program. Our aim is to increase outdoor accessibility by creating a more inclusive, safe, outdoor rock and alpine climbing environment for the LGBTQ2+ community.
On this one-day course you’ll learn everything you need to know to climb top rope on your own, including movement skills, belaying and rappelling, anchor building, gear selection and much more. All under the tutelage of supportive, queer ACMG instructors.

All Island Alpine Guides courses and trips take place in an outdoor, wilderness environment. This means that as a participant you will be encountering various risks, dangers, and hazards, some of which include avalanches, cornices, crevasses, cliffs, trees, creeks, rockfall, difficult travel conditions, weather, illness, equipment failure, wild animals, becoming lost as well as the possibility of mistakes being made by IAG guides and instructors. To participate in these activities you will be required to read and agree to our waiver as part of the registration process. You will also be required to sign the waiver at the start of the course or trip. In doing so you will waive or give up certain legal rights including the right to sue or to claim compensation following an accident.
