Outdoor Explorations: Rock Climb in Carderock Recreation Area

Outdoor Explorations: Rock Climb in Carderock Recreation Area

Sponsored by the Outdoor Exploration Affinity

Join us as we climb in beautiful Carderock Recreation Area! This is an event not to be missed! From 495, exit North on the Clara Barton Parkway (Exit 41-North).Then, take the first exit, marked "Carderock NavSurfWarCen." At the exit, turn left to enter the park, turn right at the T intersection, and your guide will meet you at the climber’s lot at the very end of that road.

To ensure the highest quality experience, we have engaged Sportrock to lead our adventure. Sportrock offers American Mountain Guide Association certified instructors who are also licensed Wilderness First Aid and Wilderness First Responders, so we'll be in great hands! 

We will aim to hike out of the parking lot at 9:00 am, so please arrive a few minutes early to allow some time to try on climbing shoes and get your gear sorted. We will return to the parking lot around noon. No prior experience is necessary. Our guide will provide all of the climbing gear needed for the course. If you have your own harness or climbing shoes, you are welcome to bring them. Also, bring a backpack with plenty of water, snacks, and sunscreen. We will not return to the parking lot until the end of class. Closed toe shoes and a rain jacket are required.
