Rock Climbing

Climbing uses your hands and feet and every part of your body in-between to ascend a steep object, like a mountainside, rock or ice formation.  You get to learn how to tie a “clove hitch” and figure 8” knot before doing anything else.  The instructor will teach how to climb up and repel down with control, all while an experienced person is belaying – holding the rope – on the bottom.   This is a fun activity that uses strength of muscles and determination to reach the top and enjoy the view!

Activity Description

Rock climbing for 30 minutes burns approximately 320 calories.
