Meet the Grand Valley Adaptive Climbing Club

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- It's no secret that rock climbing is good for the muscles and mind, and at one local gym, everyone can take part.

The Grand Valley Adaptive Climbing Club meets once a month at Grand Valley Climbing to help folks with disabilities enjoy the sport of climbing.

Volunteers tell us climbing is a fun form of physical therapy and helps teach responsible risk-taking. Now, they're hoping to get more folks involved.

"We're very friendly and welcoming to people who have never climbed before," Abram Herman, a volunteer with the Adaptive Climbing Club, said. "The whole goal is just to get people on the wall. We have great sense of community and everybody has fun when they come."

The group meets the second Friday of every month. It's only $10 to climb, that includes gear. For disabled veterans, it's free.
