Track your climbs completed on any given day.

Must achieve total # climbs that you commit to by the end of month.  Numbers below based on 1 climb = 15 feet.

  • Beginner: Pagoda = 72 Ft. = 3 Rope Climbs **Half climbs count, but must do at least one FULL climb to the top of the rope.
  • Intermediate 1: Berks Cty. Courthouse = 275 Ft = 19 climbs
