Outdoor Rock Climbing


Outdoor Rock Climbing

This all-day outdoor climbing venture is designed to foster team building in a challenging, high-pressure environment. Debriefing and scheduled reflection provide participants with an opportunity to transfer the leadership lessons learned while climbing.

The venture takes place within the Shawangunk Ridge, a 440 million year old rock formation and one of the oldest in the world.  It is one of the most iconic climbing locations on the east coast.
