Summary

The monthly meeting, second Tuesday of every month, of the adaptive climbing group in Grand Junction

Description

A great way to learn the basics of indoor rock climbing with a group of like minded community members (civilians and veterans)! We will cover the basics of rope work, belay commands, climber movement, and gym etiquette so that a first time climber or seasoned veteran, can become confidant in the vertical environment. The benefits of climbing have been proven to help a wide range of disabilities such as PTSD, amputees, and TBI's. We welcome any and all disabilities and look forward to giving back to our community.

Benefits of rock climbing include physical and mental aspects such as practice of fine motor skills, coordination of movements, balance, and core control as well as problem solving and mental focus. We will focus on every participant as an individual and encourage each climber to push their unique and personal comfort zones. All participants are welcome regardless of age, gender, or ability.

No experience or equipment needed!

Climbers are encouraged to wear comfortable and flexible clothing. Equipment is provided, including harnesses and shoes.

The climbing gym charges all non-veteran participants a reduced fee for a harness, shoes, and day pass (usually between $10-$15 total)
