It’s hard to tell from this photo, but these girls are more than 35 feet up in the air! That’s because they’re climbing on our 50-ft high ropes course Alpine Tower. It’s the coolest jungle gym you’ve ever seen, and unlike others, the Rockbrook tower has a roof (keeping things much drier), an overhanging climbing wall, and a crazy “bump out” to climb over. We open the tower every day at camp, so you can climb and climb. High ropes course climbing is the first step in our rock climbing program progression. Here you learn the basics about climbing techniques, safety protocols and equipment, and then it’s off to the next step— climbing at Castle Rock, our granite slab outcropping up the hill from the center of camp. After that, there are almost limitless climbing routes available in the Pisgah National Forest nearby. No wonder there are so many great rock climbers at Rockbrook!
