After a series of class meetings to learn the basics, this course starts with a day at the Doylestown Rock Gym, where everyone works on the skills needed to control the safety line (belaying) for the climber. The following five outings take place outdoors, on real rock, at High Rocks Vista in Ralph Stover State Park. Students climb at different locations each day, with increasing height, challenge, and difficulty. The final day takes place on a climb called “Open Face,” which is 110 feet from bottom to top. Students choose their level of difficulty and are encouraged to challenge their limits. No prior climbing experience needed. This course runs two days per week for three weeks.
DATES: Attend Six Days in the Month of April 2021
