Rock Solid Character FAQ

Children learning Rock Solid Character 7 Hondholds for Success Tell me more about the "7 Handholds for Success" or the Lessons for Life and Climbing
To ensure that students gain the most from their climbing experience, they are first challenged with a special presentation called "7 Handholds for Success." Students not only hear this lesson, but then get the immediate chance to experience the lesson for maximum retention. In our presentation, we focus on the following seven character traits:
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Honesty
  • Trustworthiness
  • Perseverance
  • Courage
  • Caring & Cooperation
How do students learn about positive character development through rock climbing?
We apply handholds of character with the practical adventure of real rock climbing. Just as students must grip handholds on the rock to make it to the top, they must get a grip on handholds of character to be successful in the climb of life.

Is this activity safe?
Safety is Rock Solid Character Priority Safety is our number one priority. Our team of highly trained facilitators help participants put on UIAA approved climbing harnesses, attach to OSHA approved belay systems, and climb this mobile 25’ rock.

How are students organized and how many can climb each class period?
Generally, between 50-60 students climb the rock during the class period (55-60 minutes). If necessary, we can handle 70 students at the maximum. Students usually come through a particular class such as PE or science.

Multiple climbs per student are common with our smaller groups. Between 400-425 students can climb per day. We offer suggestions for programming formats as requested. Half-day programs accommodate 200 students which consists of three one-hour sessions. Multi-day programs are available as well.

How long should we allow for set-up time?
We back the rock into an open area (25'x25') away from power lines, overhanging trees, noisy areas and other distractions. Set-up takes about 30 minutes. Three or four Climb Masters are present to teach the character lessons and assist children with safety harnesses and a safe climb.
