Yesterday I enjoyed another day on the rocks with an AMC Camp Group. This group in particular loved the teamwork involved with belaying and back-up belays. From carrying ropes to the cliff to helping each other with belays and support this was a really great group to work with. And the weather! We are really having a great climbing season this year, knock on wood!
Last Friday I had a blast with the amazing girls from Camp Robindel. This is the 2nd year this camp has sent a group of campers to us for some rock climbing instruction and I’ve been lucky to guide them both times. These 11 year old girls spend 7 weeks at this camp, and despite having only been there for about a week I could tell how quickly camp builds friendships and bonds. They were super supportive of each other while climbing, belaying, and rappelling. I look forward to seeing the next group they send us!
Last week I got to spend the day with an AMC camp group at Cathedral Ledge. We started over on the Thin Air face with a few top-ropes, then had a scenic lunch at the top of the cliff, followed by a rappel from “the classroom”. The kids liked rappelling so much they wanted more, so we headed down to the Barber Wall for an airy rappel before wrapping up the day.
Great kids, great weather, great times!
