Outdoor Program

The spirit of exploration, sense of adventure, and connection with nature all draw us to look at a limestone or granite cliff face and ask if it is possible to make our way to the top. Outdoor climbing is the heart of the sport we love. The Crag’s Outdoor Program offers instruction, guiding and equipment for climbers of all experience and ability levels.

Monthly Meetups

Come have an adventure with us! We offer guided climbing trips to area crags such as King’s Bluff and Stone Door. We provide all necessary climbing equipment including harnesses, helmets, shoes and ropes. Climbers who have their own equipment may use gear that passes our inspection. You don’t need any prior climbing experience or instruction, only a desire to try an adventurous new activity! Group trips are available for climbers 8 & older

King’s Bluff

Come try Outdoor climbing with a certified guide, meet new friends in the climbing community, and have an adventure! King’s Bluff is just 45 minutes north of Nashville and is great introduction to climbing outdoors. The short hike begins with a majestic overlook of the Cumberland river, a few flights of steps down opens up to a multitude of 40’+ routes ranging from 5.4 – 5.11.

Stone’s Door

The Great Stone Door is an impressive cliff line overlooking the Savage Gulf. The enjoyable hike to the climbing area is approximately 1-mile and features 2 main dynamic climbing sites! The overlook is awe inspiring, a great place for a group pic, and a memorable way to end the day!
