Program Feature: CLIMBING & RAPPELLING

Go Vertical!

Your heart fluttering madly, you step gingerly toward the edge of the cliff, sit down on an invisible chair, and then take a single step into thin air. At first, you can hardly let the rope slide through your hands, but then you start taking baby steps down the face of the cliff— one step, then another, then another. Halfway down, you bounce out just a little, beginning to feel the first surge of confidence. When you touch the ground, you’re glad to be safe. But you’re also ready to conquer the cliff again!

Climbing and rappelling are among the most exciting activities you can do in Scouting. Whether you visit a climbing gym, a tower at Scout camp, or a wilderness site with cliffs and boulders, you will enjoy the physical rush of descending on a rope and the mental challenge of finding a path back to the top.
