This year GSTA is excited to introduce our newest addition to our Outdoor Academy. The GSTA Granite Rock Climbing Adventure will be held in Pisgah National Forest at the Linville Gorge and Looking Glass Rock NC from June 21 to 27, 2019. The most experienced American Mountain Guide Association Certified Instructors in the Southeast will be our primary instructors and guides. This adventure will expose teens to a number of rock climbing fundamentals to include belaying, top-roping, rappelling, “mock”lead climbing, movement techniques, and will conclude with a multi-pitch climb up the famous Looking Glass Rock. Apart from the challenges of an intense week of climbing, teens will advance their camping skills, and will be challenged through a deliberate leadership experience that will serve them for the rest of their lives. This is an advanced outdoor adventure, and will be by invite only.
