IRCS is excited to offer outdoor day trips program to children and their families this November!
It is getting colder, but still good enough to have fun climbing and learning new skills, gaining confidence and making new friends!!!
We will be going to various locations in the White Mountains, NH and New England climbing at some areas well known to our children and also visiting some new and quality climbing areas. Our prime climbing location will be at Rumney, NH. Rumney Rocks is a world famous climbing area which provides us with endless amount of the best quality routes of all levels from 5.0 to 5.15. We also visit some other great climbing area of NE especially when the weather at Rumney is not good.
During many years of coaching our students climbing real rocks we’ve developed a friendly, supportive and challenging atmosphere in the group. People off any climbing level are welcome to join in and learn new skills with the rest of the participants. We pay special attention to the new students with minimum or no experience and carefully guide them to become sufficient climbers.
The group size is limited to 6 people.
The cost is $60.
Pick up (7am) and drop off (6pm) location is at Park and Ride exit 42 of route I- 93 (Dascomb RD.)
