A Dedicated Climbing Camp for Experienced Youth Climbers!
This educational climbing camp is open to students who have previously enrolled in WYMG youth climbing camps and/or have sufficiently demonstrated competency with fundamental climbing safety systems and traditional climbing techniques. Students will build off of these foundations as they are introduced to multipitch climbing systems in Vedauwoo and the Snowy Range. Compared to our regular climbing camp curriculum, more emphasis will be placed on the mental over the physical aspects of climbing, focusing in particular on technical systems, risk assessment, route planning, and decision making while climbing taller (albeit moderate) terrain. As such this camp is more suitable for youth in the 15-18 year old age range with relatively high levels of general fitness.
