We held our first outdoor session of the intro to rock climbing program Rock It (real outdoor climbing knowledge introductory training) on June 5. We had six super keen volunteer leaders and 10 participants. All of the leaders were very impressed by the participants this year – they are catching on quickly!
We practiced basic climbing skills, belaying, setting and cleaning anchors and rapelling! We hope to keep seeing these folks out in the mountains once the program is over!
