COVID 19 Updates

4/1/2020: To ensure the safety of our community we are in the process developing plans for all of our programs to run safe.  At this time only a few will open and this will be through day to day, week to week decision making. Our staff will also be working remote but checking messages on a regular basis.

5/1/2020: Our other activities are currently on hold until further notice.  We hope 2021 will bring us new beginnings and more fun activities! We will post updates as well as contact our volunteers and participants after we have a plan in place.  If you have questions or need more information, please give us a call at 454-1449.

Climbing

 

Adaptive climbing is both physically and psychologically beneficial and requires not only movement and strength but also courage and planning.  Program provided through the Hi-Line Climbing Center.

  • Bouldering Basics: Bouldering is a form of rock climbing on shorter walls with no ropes and no harnesses; but with big pads underneath to provide a safer landing. This is a small group that is learning the fundamentals of climbing techniques, meeting new friends and getting physically stronger. (8 yrs old and up)
  • Learn the Ropes: This form of rock climbing is with ropes to help assist the climber. The climber may be using the climbing holds on the walls and/or the ropes to ascend. (8 yrs old and up)
  • Level Up (VO-V2): After mastering the Bouldering Basics class, this is the next level. This is a small group with a coach to help the climber work through bouldering problems. This group has the possibility to compete in bouldering competitions around the state of Montana. (12 yrs old and up)
  • One-on-One: This class is for those that may not be ready for a group setting. This is catered individually to the climber and their needs. (6 yrs old and up)
