Outdoor Adventures: Weekly Crate Climbing

Check out and experience what crate climbing is all about. This challenging activity involves stacking and scaling crates as high as you can. It's harder than it looks, but you'll catch on quickly. You are suited in a harness and belayed by an experienced Outdoor Adventure leader. How high can you climb without the crate tower toppling over?

All ages welcome. Those under 16 require a parent/guardian over the age of 18 to attend. 

Compete in a crate challenge. Prizes are awarded to all participants who attend every week’s session. Also, prizes will be awarded to the top three highest total number of total crates climbed during the month. Complete your challenge card each week you attend.  

This is a free event; no registration required. 

Date and time(s): 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays, Oct. 18 through Nov. 15 on Court 6 inside of the Rec.
