Rock climbing is at our roots. In our rock climbing program we currently offer 3 types of events: “Paradox Rocks” camping and climbing events, an epic climb up the Grand Teton, and we run a local adaptive climbing club with Adaptive Adventures. More info on the Front Range Adaptive Climbing Club here: http://paradoxsports.org/climbing-club/
Paradox Rocks is a legendary series of weekend gatherings with amazing adaptive climbing where people with disabilities, their friends, partners and families can rock climb during the day and gather around the campfire at night. There is no formal instruction but we will have experts that can help get you started and offer climbing tips and techniques. If you plan to climb and camp, you will bring your climbing gear (harness, helmet, belay device and shoes) and camping gear. We have some items available lend you. Paradox Sports will cover all camp reservations, rigging of ropes, belayers, adaptive gear and all meals. These are memory-making weekends – we want to see you there!

The 2014 Grand Teton climb is brought to you in partnership with Exum Mountain Guides. Please note that this is a rigorous climb and requires a certain level of physical fitness and climbing skills. The journey begins with a Multipitch Climbing Level 1 and 2 course with Exum. After passing these prerequisite classes, the team will rely on participation and teamwork during their ascent. The result is a heightened sense of accomplishment and an unforgettable bond with their fellow climbers.
The 7-mile, 5,000-foot approach to the Exum Hut, on the saddle between the Middle and Grand Teton, climbs steeply through hillsides blanketed in wildflowers and past gorgeous waterfalls. The team will enjoy the extraordinary views of three states Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana at the top then rappel and down-climb for several hours for the descent.
The registration fee includes all guide services, meals, accommodation and transportation to the climb. You will be responsible for your transportation to and from the event. We have a successful fundraising platform called Crowdrise that we can utilize with your participation if financial assistance is needed.
Registration is now live! September 3-6, 2014 – Grand Teton National Park, WY
