Upper Limits Climbing Wall
St. Louis, MO
December 13, 2014
Troop 161 spent the day at Upper Limits where the Scouts learned about rappelling, climbing, and the equipment needed for climbing. The Scouts were instructed and did many of the requirements for their climbing merit badge.
We met at St. Simon Parking lot at 10:00am and proceeded to Upper Limits in West County. The Scouts were given an orientation on safety, equipment, and the fundamentals of climbing. Once the Scouts passed their safety qualifications the instructor worked with them on harnessing, buddy system, climbing, and repelling, they spent three hours climbing and repelling.
All who attended had a great time and commented on needing upper & lower body strength in order to perform some of the harder climbs at Upper Limits. We returned back to St. Simons around 1:30 pm.
