Troop 514 recently enjoyed its annual rock climbing event. We leave early Saturday morning and drive to Anthony Lake, a delightful alpine lake less than an hour distance. We then backpack up to a higher lake where we camp. The boys day hike and then cook a variety on one pot meals as patrols. In the morning, under the guidance of experienced climbers, the Scouts enjoy excellent rock climbing and rappelling, The first time Scouts are usually a bit tentative in their approach to the granite wall, but after they try it once, they are exuberantly head up again, pleased with their new self confidence and sense of adventure.
