Multipitch Rock Climbing
Guided Multipitch climbing
Multipitch climbing is the process of climbing larger rock faces. This exciting form of climbing involves a team working together to repeatedly climb and clean a pitch. Come climb some of the classic multipitch routes so abundant in North Carolina and get 500 feet off the ground. Multipitch climbing is an adventure climbing at its best and is a process of lead climbing several pitches of rock to reach summits or the tops of cliff faces hundreds of feet tall. This is an exciting and fun way to experience the fantastic views of Appalachian rock climbing.
North Carolina rock climbing has some of the best long routes in the Southeast with some cliffs over 500′ tall. Looking Glass Rock has the famous route “the Nose” and is a fantastic route that anyone would enjoy. Linville gorge provides you with breathtaking views on some of the multipitch routes in the Amphitheater or on Table rock. Other locations include, Rumbling Bald, Shortoff, and Hawksbill. AMI climbing guides know the area well, as many of the guides have been climbing in the NC for decades. North Carolina rock climbs are diverse and there are opportunities for a wide range of abilities. Don’t wait, experience the thrill of climbing mulitpitch rock.

I would like to say thanks for the great day. You are truly a professional at your craft and way more than just a climbing guide. Not only did you keep us safe going and coming, but you did a great job of distracting me from the agony of the hike out with conversation and meteorology jokes.
My friend and I had a fantastic time climbing with Patrick. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced and took a great effort in making sure that each of us had a great time while learning something new. Patrick is also extremely efficient in time / route / rope management so we were able to climb as much as possible during the limited time. Would love to go back and climb with him again!
