Come join Save Mount Diablo for a day of beginning rock climbing instruction at Mount Diablo’s classic Boy Scout Rocks. We will go over equipment instruction as well as coaching on a number of top rope climbs, and provide insight into the importance of climbing stewardship at both climbing areas and in outdoor recreation. Rock climbing is a very fun activity with great benefits.
Be sure to bring: snacks, water, sturdy shoes, and rock-climbing shoes.
SMD will provide harness, ropes, hardware necessary and instruction.
Heavy rain cancels.
