Rock climbing offers one of nature’s most basic  problem solving challenges - how do I get from here to there? Which is an essential questions of Find Your Path’s curriculum. Where am I going and what do I need to be prepared?

We are running a climbing program in Maple  Canyon in the Manti-La Sal National Forest. The program include 5 nights at Maple Canyon Campground and 4 days of climbing and hiking, a unique Cretaceous-age conglomerate formation with climbing popular with novices and avid climbers.

 

Participants will develop skills in bouldering, belaying and safety equipment, top-rope climbing, foot and hand holds, and climbing technique. At the campsite, participants will develop skills in outdoor cooking, Leave No Trace wilderness ethics, and map-reading and navigation. Desired outcomes are heightened awareness of self, others, and the physical and social environments around us, increased competence and confidence in one’s own abilities, problem-solving and resilience, and the development of a connection to others and the world around them.
