Intro Rock Climbing Weekend

Climbing at Grassi Lakes this morning.

Just finished up a great weekend of rock climbing with four fun participants on our first Intro Rock Course of the season. The weather was a bit chilly but we counteracted the cold by climbing non-stop and tons of fun was had by all!

We spent Saturday learning the basics at a crag near Banff, and everyone did about a dozen climbs throughout the day. In the afternoon everyone took a turn rappelling off a 100 foot overhanging cliff!

Today we headed up to Grassi Lakes and climbed all day at the Golf Course Wall & Gardeners Wall. Everyone's climbing skills progressed lots and a few people even did their first lead climbs!

It was an excellent way to spend May long weekend and I hope to see everyone from the course again in the future!
