Arrive to our beautiful hidden cabin in the mountains or to your tranquil camp site in western North Carolina. Become acquainted with the surrounding trails and scenery until dinner. Over dinner, we will have a round of introductions and a brief orientation to the adventures ahead. Spend the evening relaxing in a hammock or on the front porch rocking chairs. Accommodations: mountain cabin

Day 2-3: Time to Climb!

Today you will tie in and learn the ropes of the local climbing scene. You could probably make a strong case for North Carolina as the home of the best rock climbing in the south. No other southern state has the variety or sheer volume hosted here. With routes fitted for beginners to seasoned veterans, all skill levels will be challenged and entertained. Depending on the weather conditions, there will be opportunities to rock and ice climb. This trip is designed to introduce beginners to the sport while also providing opportunities for experienced climbers to expand their skillset all within the same proximity of eachother. Spend the evenings relaxing by a warm campfire, soaking in the hot tub or meandering through the artsy mountain town of Asheville!

I would recommend BTM for any trip you and your friends want to go on, or to any organization interested in planning a trip... especially if you are interested in "getting out there" and not just stopping at the common tourist spots everyone goes to. 

This was hands-down one of the the most exciting, rewarding, and memorable trips I've ever been on! The peace of mind to know that I didn't have to worry about anything was worth every penny. All I had to do was show up. Cody and Lystina took it from there. No stress, no anxiety, no rushing around or wasting time trying to find an activity or a place to eat. I got to sit back, relax, and experience a whole new world that was far beyond my map.

Since I've been back I have recommended these trips to so many people because this company creates these remarkable journeys that allow people to experience the world in a unique way. I can't wait to go on my next expedition with Beyond the Map!
