Outdoor Explorations: Rock & Rope at Great Falls Park, VA

Great Falls National Park
Start Date
End Date

Join us as we climb in beautiful Great Falls National Park, a 30 minute drive from DC and located on the scenic Potomac River (9200 Old Dominion Drive, McLean, VA 22102). This is an event not to be missed!

To ensure the highest quality experience, we have engaged Sportrock to lead our adventure. Sportrock offers American Mountain Guide Association certified instructors who are also licensed Wilderness First Aid and Wilderness First Responders, so we'll be in great hands! 

We will aim to hike out of the parking lot at 9:00 AM, so please arrive a few minutes early to allow some time to try on climbing shoes and get your gear sorted. We will return to the parking lot around noon. No prior experience is necessary. Our guide will provide all of the climbing gear needed for the course. If you have your own harness or climbing shoes, you are welcome to bring them. Also, bring a backpack with plenty of water and snacks and sunscreen. We will not return to the parking lot until the end of class. Closed toe shoes and a rain jacket are required.

After we climb, we'll head over to The Old Brogue Irish Pub, 760 Walker Road, Great Falls, VA 22066 for some snacks and beverages and to celebrate a successful, fun-filled morning on the mountain!
