The Arizona Mountaineering Club has been teaching mountaineering and outdoor rock climbing for over 55 years. We emphasize safety first and foremost using current best practices, the practical knowledge of knots and basic equipment, communication and the climbing process, and self-rescue techniques.  With this solid foundation, we provide an environment where you can learn and advance your climbing skills.

Our classes rely on the experience and leadership of those listed below.  The students and instruction assistants are supported  by experienced club members in working through the many practical exercises throughout the various courses.
