Summary

This is a veteran only group that focuses on indoor rock climbing.

Description

 

A great way to learn the basics of indoor rock climbing with a group of like minded veterans! We will cover the basics of rope work, climber movement, and gym etiquette so that a first time climber or seasoned veteran, can come and enjoy the thrill of climbing. No experience is needed. 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 vets.

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 veterans are welcome regardless of age, gender, or ability.

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