Tipping

Tipping is a way of showing satisfaction with your climbing crew. Tipping is a sign of appreciation for good service and helps ensure continued good service for those who follow you. As with any tipping situation, if the service was of particularly high quality, we encourage you to give a generous tip; if the service did not meet your expectations, adjust the tip accordingly. You should arrange tips of between $ 150 – $ 200 for all crew for the entire trip.
