We specialize in one on one, families, scout groups, school groups, and Corporate Team building groups. No experience necessary, beginners to experts. For those who have never climbed before, Mountain Skills offers introductory courses to climbing where climbers will be gradually introduced to varying degrees of height and difficulty.Trips are available year round. Climbers who have had some experience with rock climbing are encouraged to take the Intermediate Skills course which helps improve climbing form, techniques and skills. Advanced climbers will also discover that there is more to learn with an Advanced Climbing course or to enjoy climbing with a private guide that know the ins and outs of the area. What makes rock climbing in Taos unique is 300 days of sunshine a year, mild winters, cool summers, unrivaled sunsets, and panoramic vistas in a wilderness setting.
