Rock Climbing

Contact: Director, Sarah Burton Doleac, for information and summer group reservations at

The Rock Gym is currently closed!

Rock climbing is an activity in which participants climb up, down or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls.  The goal is to reach the top of a formation of the endpoint of a pre-defined route without falling.  To successfully complete a climb, one must return to the base of the route safely.

Rock climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport that can test a climber's strength, endurance, agility, balance and mental and emotional limits.
