Try something new with the kids this summer and visit Black Rock Bouldering in Phoenix!
We’ve done harnessed rock climbing before, but this was the first time we’ve free climbed. True story: it was a little unnerving. We may have had some hesitations and fears to face. Those walls are pretty high, and the rocks to grip or stand on can seem very small!
But the staff at Black Rock Bouldering were amazing. They gave tips, helped us practice closer to the ground before moving up, and made it fun with games. Bouldering is about balance, technique, strength – and using your brain! In the end, we really enjoyed the challenge and want to go back this summer.
Thanks to Black Rock Bouldering for having us, and a huge high five to our instructor, Zack. If you come in for a private lesson, which we recommend, ask for him! He was great with the kids (and a hesitant mama, ha), very encouraging the entire way.
