Outdoor Bouldering Day Trip
October 4th, 2014 we are offering an outdoor bouldering day trip to Cooper’s Rock, WV. This is a great opportunity for our athletes who have bouldered indoors and are looking to continue to improve their skills. Outdoor bouldering presents different challenges and learning opportunities, but also additional risks. A parent or designated chaperone will be responsible for transportation and supervision of each athlete during this day trip. Earth Trek’s Coaches will meet you and your child at Coopers for an amazing day on some of the best rock on the East Coast.
Preregistration is required for this program. Check out the details and link for registration below:
