Ready to try rock climbing? Do it safely (as possible) with a rope and experienced guide. Jay Stewart will take you to a cliff, where he will set up top ropes and go over climbing basics (how to tie in, climbing calls, and climbing technique). You will try climbs of different difficulties and varieties. At the end, you will rappel down the cliff. (Alternatively, we can go to a rock gym, but they will not have rappelling practice.) NOTE: Jay is not a certified climbing guide, but has taught people how to climb for more than 50 years and never had anyone injured beyond a shin bruise or wasp sting. Naturally, he will have you sign a waiver of responsibility for yourself or your child.
PROVIDED EQUIPMENT: climbing harness, ropes, and other climbing hardware.
YOU PROVIDE: some sort of helmet (bike or ski or rock climbing; he can provide some, but they might not fit well) and shoes that fit well (hiking boots are better than tennis shoes—no sandals)
