Details: This multi-day climbing experience starts in the gym as you meet your instructors and fellow climbers to hone your lead climbing and belaying skills. After a day of rest, you’ll meet your group again early in the morning for the trip north to Rumney, NH. You’ll spend the day practicing on some classic climbs, with plenty of breaks to ease the pump and get to know some of your potential future climbing partners. Relax on the van ride back with a nap, or by scheming with your fellow climbers for the next epic outing you’re planning. Transportation, instruction, and gear are provided on this trip.
