Rock Climbing - A Challenge of Balance and Strength

Rock climbing is an incomparable challenge. It takes every muscle in your body to inch you upward. There's no time for distraction, no room for your mind to wander. It's you and a route up narrow fissures and narrower ledges. Chase your fear back into the shadows, as you balance on fingertips and toeholds all the way to the top.

Once at the top the view is unbelievable. The sense of accomplishment is exhilarating.  You are on top of the world. But what goes up must come down and now you have to face another challenge - rappelling. With your newfound sense of confidence you'll accept this challenge with poise- just like you'll accept challenges back in your "real" life.   

On an Outward Bound rock climbing trip encounter routes that blow your mind, challenge your endurance, and redefine your strengths. The outdoors is your classroom for this rock climbing class. You'll learn the fundamentals of setting anchors, belay systems and hardware, rappelling, rock site environmental awareness, and Leave No Trace camping techniques.
