Rock Climbing Opportunities in the Blue Ridge

Roanoke, Va. (WFXR) – The sport of rock climbing has grown tremendously over the past decade and with movies like Free Solo featuring Professional Rock Climber, Alex Honnold taking on Yosemite National Park’s El Capitan – many may have wondered if they have what it takes to get into the sport.

Luckily, you don’t need to go all the way to the West Coast to find outdoor rock climbing, nor do you need to climb ropeless like Honnold. The location east of the Roanoke Valley allows rock climbers access to climbing routes in all directions.

AMGA Head Rock Climbing Guide with Blue Ridge Mountain Guides, Grant Price explains how locals can take advantage of outdoor rock climbing opportunities, how to get started in the sport, and offers great information on using the services of guidance.

A guiding service allows a client to be fully present in the moment as professional guides have advanced technical and safety training as well as extensive research into the level and location of routes. Most importantly, climbing is an exciting and fun experience!
