Out past the flagpoles of Gilwell Field sits the mighty rock. There are bigger rocks in the world to climb; However, it is still a thrill to get to the top. You can sign up for the Climbing Merit Badge or just come on down for a free climb in the afternoon or evening.
The Rock is available for Troop Climbs during open climb times. If you would like to sign up see the Climbing Director. Please be aware that slots may fill up quickly.
"Climbing," called the Scout and, "Climb on," is the answer. Tired of living on the bottom? Well then, climb to the top on this outpost. Learn climbing and rappelling techniques in this extended program. Cost is $5 per person.
