Climbing with Frost Valley YMCA 7-2-13 and 7-4-13

This past week 8 kids and 2 counselors from YMCA Camp Frost joined EMS Schools in North Conway for a few days of rock climbing. I got to join them both Tuesday and Thursday and had a great time sharing our sport at both Square Ledge and Whitehorse. Tuesday was a bit foggy/rainy but we still had fun at Square, and we got a few pitches in Thursday on Whitehorse followed by some air-conditioned bouldering back at EMS No. Co. Below are the photos from their trip!

Licking slugs was something I never saw camp kids so into... weird.

About David Lottmann

David grew up skiing in the Whites and started climbing at a summer camp just north of Mt. Washington when he was 16. Those first couple of years solidified climbing as a lifetime passion. From 1996-2000 he served in the USMC, and spent the better part of those years traveling the globe (18 countries). After returning to civilian life he moved to North Conway to focus on climbing and was hired in 2004 as a Rock and Ice Instructor. Since then Dave has taken numerous AMGA courses, most recently attaining a Single Pitch Instructor. He has completed a Level 3 AIARE avalanche course, is a Level 2 Course Leader, holds a valid Wilderness First Responder and is a member of Mountain Rescue Service. When David isn't out guiding he enjoys mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, backcountry skiing, trying to cook something new once a week and sampling new micro-brews. He lives in Conway, NH with his wife Michelle, son Alex, and daughter Madalena.
