Highly recommend Fabi! He is super organized, friendly and safe. He was on time, prepared with everything we needed, fully explained everything we needed to know and made sure we felt safe during every step. He’s super encouraging and really knows what he is doing!

What an amazing experience! We took the beginners class, and so happy we did, Fabi was very knowledgeable, breaking instructions down step by step making it easier and fun to learn! After learning all the important safety steps we got to climbing right away, with fabi right there giving us pointers on the best route to take. I left class feeling more confident in my abilities to climb. Fabi has such a chill, friendly, and encouraging way of teaching, it felt like we were learning with a friend. I highly reccomend. Thank you for sharing your knowledge Fabi!

Had such an incredible time doing my first trad rock climbing multi pitch! Coach Jakob was extremely professional and taught my friend and I so much. We went up over 2,000 feet and got to the top of a stunning mountain in Idyllwild. He was informative and we felt completely safe the entire time. It was a fun and beautiful adventure. We would highly recommend Jakob and Chillino Rock Climbing Group for your upcoming adventures!

My partner and I just finished an intro climbing class with Chillino and it was fantastic! Our guide was Fabi and he was knowledgeable, friendly, encouraging and always put safety first. A great introduction to outdoor climbing with an emphasis on learning basics the right way and having fun, whatever your skill level. We started with an overview of equipment, a short hike in Mission Hills and a thorough training on using the equipment. We had the chance to do several lines at our own pace. All were a good challenge! Overall, a great class and highly recommend :)

Absolutely incredible experience! I hardly have any experience as a climber and Fabian did a great job at showing me the basics and making sure I knew how to safely and adequately climb. There was plenty of time for me to get my hands dirty and the location was beautiful! The team that came along was very positive and encouraging! Would definitely recommend Fabian's climbing options!

Climbers who join our Night climbing San Diego session are required to know how to safely operate a tope rope setup. Skills such as, belaying via PLUS technique (ATC-type device or GrGri) and tying a figure eight knot are pre-requisite.

Night climbing San Diego may cause you to step out of your ‘comfort zone’ This has a huge benefit as it increases your brain function by shifting focus from using one sense to another. Us humans often tend to be fixated on certain ways of doing certain things. Adopting such habits let us forget about different approaches that may offer a better and more valuable solution to a problem.

The same can be applied to night climbing where the element of light is taken away to a high percentage. Many climbers report to be more focused because of paying more attention to “how things feel” compared to just visually looking for a foot and handhold. The “bubble effect” is another phenomena that night climbers report. A situation where the light of a headlamp creates a bubble around the climber, letting her forget about the epic exposure and other environmental factors around.

Come see for yourself and discover ‘America’s Finest’ from a higher perspective and activate your adventure spirits on this unique climbing experience. We also take advantage of the cooler evening/night time temperatures. It is amazing to see how quickly our body can adapt to different conditions. Trust your touch and be guided and coached through more difficult parts of the climb.
