Vertical Vipers is a quality program for experienced young climbers. This program builds the foundation for strong, fit, motivated and goal-oriented kids. With a high instructor-to-climber ratio, climbers learn and develop intermediate to advanced skills and technique that translates to strength and knowledge on the wall. Athletes in this program compete in a local competition series in the winter and take outdoor climbing trips in the summer. All climbers interested in participating on the Vertical Vipers team must be comfortable taking falls while climbing and should be able to execute tracking.
