Climbing in Downtown Boone, NC

The Footsloggers outdoor store in Boone, NC has a 40′ tall, 4000 square foot climbing tower.  My son Isaac, age 9, enjoys climbing.  Yesterday he did some climbing at the climbing tower. The tower is operated by Rock Dimensions, a climbing service in Boone.

Second Climb at the Tower

The second climb involved a couple of inverted wall sections, where there were angled overhangs.

The final climb was the most difficult.  It required him to reach out and around from a three foot overhang.  As this is one of the most difficult climbs there, a small crowd gathered to cheer him on.  The video below is about 4 minutes.
