New River Gorge, WV


Recommended for kids aged 9 to 15

Our New River Rock Trip is a great introduction to outdoor rock climbing, hiking and camping for young climbers. Located in Fayetteville, WV, the New River Gorge is one of the best climbing areas in the East Coast! With over 3000 routes to choose from, the New has the greatest variety of routes, for all skill levels, of any climbing area in the country. Skills covered include: top rope climbing, basic rappelling, knot tying and basic rope skills, leave no trace hiking and camping ethics, and general outdoor climbing safety.

Climbers will also, of course, have a chance to test their climbing skills on real rock, learning improved technique and a repertoire of moves that will improve their overall ability and confidence as climbers.
