Adapted Climbing

These programs are designed to introduce people with special needs to a fun lifelong activity. Our unique wall allows us to set up a variety of different programs and systems in order to accommodate climbers with any physical or developmental disabilities. Our experienced and enthusiastic instructors will work with you to create a custom program fitted to whatever your needs may be. We will challenge participants in a fun, safe, supportive manner to ensure that each participant feels included and successful.
