Adaptive Climbing Initiative Course
Salt Pump – Scarborough, Maine
*Note* This Course is in partnership with Maine Adaptive Sports and Recreation and available only to volunteers with Maine Adaptive.
The Adaptive Climbing Initiative is an invitation to all of us to rethink what is possible.
Sponsored by The North Face, adaptive climbing courses include a mix of classroom education, open discussions and on-the-wall training and facilitation over a two day period. Facilitators explain the specifics for creating and curating an adaptive climbing program while developing safe, inclusive, supportive communities for adaptive athletics. With a focus on physical adaptation for climbing with paralysis, amputation, visual/hearing impairment, and neuromuscular disorders, these courses provide information and access to adaptive climbing equipment, the first of its kind comprehensive adaptive climbing manual, systems and resources. The expert anecdotes and lessons provided serve adaptive athletes, climbing wall instructors, outdoor guides, physical therapists, and well-being advocates of all types.
