Outdoor winter rock climbing is gaining in popularity throughout the country.

Experts recommend that before tackling any outdoor climbing challenge, you enroll in a course in which skilled instructors may provide supervised training both indoors and outdoors. No matter your skill level, don’t miss out on these fun area options.
