Description

Rock scrambling

REGISTRATION: https://bonticousept2017.eventbrite.com

Part of this is a metaphor for how to tackle life's biggest obstacles where people see a huge challenge in front of them and don't take a moment to take in the reality that what is before them really is a culmination of lots of little hills that make up the big one they only see and are intimidated by.

The rock scramble is easy for most adults and children although can be psychologically challenging especially for adults who have amassed many fears and built negative associations through their lifetime, yet once you make it past the irrational blocks you begin to feel you can conquer anything.

The scramble appears incredibly impossible although when you look at it in its more real and tangible components by chunking it down to what you are actually tackling one footstep at a time is a breeze.. one foot in front of the other as they say when learning how to walk.

Ride shares available depending on drivers. The contribution is $20. The ride is approximately 1:45 min.

In case of rain forecast, the decision will be confirmed Friday as to start time or cancellation.


Rock caves

The rewards are sweeping Fall Foliage vistas from the summit overlooking the forests, and the knowledge you climbed (non-technical, does not need the use of equipment) a rock field that some people look at and say 'oh my', yet you see kids from 10yo and up scurrying up it like billy goats. All in all, it is lots of fun, refreshing, and empowering.

A great hike in a magical space with white castle walls, vast sweeping vistas, fun challenges, and a good easy work out on the trail.
