Join the ORC and climbing expert Bill Johnson on an adventure that will take you to new heights! Within the 63,000 acres of New River Gorge National River are over 1,400 established rock climbs. The “New” has become one of the most popular climbing areas in the country. The cliffs at New River Gorge are made up of a very hard sandstone and range from 30 to 120 feet in height. The rock is very featured, and an abundance of crack and face routes are available. This short course is for all, beginner to advanced! Come out for an amazing weekend.
The Hocking State Forest Rock Climbing and Rappelling Area has nearly a mile of cliffs ranging up to 100 feet in height. Numerous slump blocks, cracks, chimneys and overhangs provide a variety of challenges to the rock climber and rappeller.
The cost is $40.00 ($30.00 for WSU Climbing Club Members) and includes all equipment, instruction, and transportation.
