Support our Organization to Promote Opportunities
United Rocks offers competitive rock climbing opportunities. Our committed, enthusiastic and fun rock climbing team serves climbers ages 3+ with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
We offer 4 types of rock climbing:
This is an automatic device that takes up slack as the climber climbs the wall and controls the descent, eradicating the need for a belay partner.
It is all about climbing on shorter walls, without a rope above crash mats.
It is a type of climbing on longer walls using a fixed rope. The rope runs from the belayer at the bottom of the direction to an anchor system at the top and backs down to the climber.
It is climbing on longer walls, without a fixed rope. As the climber goes up, they slide the rope into safety equipment connected to the wall.
Benefits of Rock Climbing
This sport pushes you to your limits and gives you a huge sense of accomplishment. Rock climbing is a low-impact exercise, which means it is easier on your body, particularly your joints, while still being a great full-body workout.
