With the start to our 2011 summer season just around the corner, we are celebrating by creating our first ever BLOG.
There is so much happening with Acadia Mountain Guides this year! First and foremost, we have re-opened our Bar Harbor shop and we are now ready to offer folks an early chance to climb on the iconic Acadia Sea Cliffs before it gets really crowded. We offer exciting half and full day climbing trips inside Acadia National Park. Whether you are looking to try out rock climbing for the first time or you want to dust off the old climbing rack and get some classic pitches in, Acadia Mountain Guides can promise a memorable experience. Please call for rates and availability, 207 288 8186.
Starting the weekend of June 3rd, Acadia Mountain Guides will be providing a four day Single Pitch & Top Rope Site Manager course for the Professional Climbing Instructors Association (PCIA). This course will focus on the fundamental skills of anchor building, learning how to manage a top rope climbing site from the ground and from the top of the cliff, and how these skills relate to single pitch lead climbs. These skills are crucial for anyone who wants to facilitate rock climbing for colleges clubs or camp leaders. Additionally, this course is open to the public and will give any recreational climber the skills and confidence to climb anywhere. There are only a few spots left! To sign up, give us a call at 207 288 8186.
Be ready to deal with any emergency mother nature can throw at you with the Wilderness First Aid course! On June 14-15th, Acadia Mountain Guides will also be hosting a Wilderness First Aid course provided by Wilderness Medical Association (WMA). WMA instructor and AMG owner Jon Tierney will be teaching the course. This is a bare minimum course requirement for most camp or college outdoor leaders. Spots are still available. Call to guarantee your place 207 288 8186!
