One of Troop 233’s more popular camping trips of the fall is the Nelson Rocks Outdoor Center in West Virginia, October 15-16, 2016. This year, the scouts had a choice of a spectacular fixed-cable rock climb (“Via Ferrata”), or, for younger scouts, a tree canopy zipline tour. Set in the beautiful Shenandoah Mountains, the scouts had an opportunity to test their limits a mile of fixed-anchor, professionally-guided rock climbing. During this several hour climb the scouts climbed 1085 feet in elevation, crossed a suspension bridge that is 150 feet high and 200 feet long, and reached exposed heights of 280 feet. Here are a few photos from the weekend.
