    If you have a passion for climbing, gear, and conquering big cliffs, this camp is tailor-made for you. The emphasis is on refining efficiency in climbing techniques while fostering friendships, independence, and strength amidst the stunning outdoors of Maine. There will be lots of climbing and opportunities to sample other outdoor adventures such as hiking, canoeing, kayaking and/or rafting.

    We will climb many traditional routes between 5.6 and 5.10 in difficulty. The alpine natuture of many of the areas requires more efficient movement skills and a higher degree of fitness. The lead guide for this trip will be school owner Jon Tierney, an internationally licensed IFMGA mountain and/or a senior guide staff with appropriate certifications and experience. Campers will have the opportunity to climb with multiple guides on routes of varying difficulty as desired. Daily skill clinics will focus on topics of interest to campers. This course is about having fun while climbing great routes and learning.

    We recommend that campers entering this program have completed RockPro 2 or have equivalent skills. Campers should be capable of climbing at least 5.7. Qualified campers will be given opportunities to lead climbs although lead climbing ability is not a prerequisite. Campers seeking to learn to lead should enroll in RockPro III (sport climbing focus) or RockPro IV (trad climbing focus). Camp is limited to 3-4 campers per guide and an interview is required prior to registration.
