Basic topics for training in the National Capital Area Council (NCAC) climbing program.
The intended audience is adults and older youth who are willing to take responsibility for leading units in climbing on manufactured (artificial) and natural material.
In accordance with BSA Guide to Safe Scouting, and BSA Climb on Safely, the scope of climbing training is limited to top roping, rappelling, and bouldering. While additional types of climbing are technically possible (e.g., lead climbing), individuals and units who exceed the prescribed scope do so at their own risk (and liability). People who want to expand the program should join the NCAC Climbing committee.
Goshen Scout Reservation is home to many outdoor rock climbing locations. This guide provides units in the area and Goshen Scout Reservation Climbing Staffs guidelines for Council approved planning and use of these sites.
