Climb Kentucky (ages 12-16)
Given the opportunity to go to any climbing place on the East Coast, here at Calleva we choose Red River Gorge. Answer is simple… this is a great place to get your first Sport Lead climb in! In order for a young climber to make the transition to a lead climber, our staff work with them to find a good route that fit their skills and strengths. After lots of practice on the route to establish confidence, our climbers start “mock” leads where they can trail a lead rope to clip, while still climbing under the protection of a top anchor. Once the skill of building and using their PAS (Personal Anchor System) to complete the transfer is to the satisfaction of our Instructor; campers are gently encouraged to step well outside their comfort zone and climb!
