If your kids are climbing the walls it is time to take things to the next level. Our youth climbing program is designed to take young indoor climbers and prepare them for outdoor climbing. During these climbing programs participants will not only gain basic outdoor skills and knowledge about things like local plants and animals, but also a variety of climbing skills. They'll learn how to lead and toprope belay as well as climbing technique, basic anchor building skills, rappelling, and more.
