Learn to Climb with IMG
Our mission is to make better climbers of every customer who joins one of our programs from beginners to the experienced, and every one of our guides considers teaching to be a primary part of their job. We want to share our love of the mountains and for you to leave our programs better able to enjoy the outdoors. Whether your goal is to safely go rock climbing with your friends, ski in the backcountry, to climb Mt. Rainier or the Seven Summits, we have the experience, skill, and passion to help you make that happen.
If you are just starting out, and want to see what courses, seminars and climbs we have available for new climbers, take a look at our Expeditions Filter, and check the boxes for "beginner" and "skills building." You can also filter by dates and locations.
