BettiesRock! adventures take place out at Smith Rock State Park or here in Portland at The Circuit Bouldering Gym, Stoneworks Climbing, or Portland Rock Gym. Up to 12 girls and 6 women forge strong relationships while they learn to rock climb together. As a group the participants learn to properly wear a harness, safely tie in to the rope, and to utilize various climbing techniques to conserve energy, protect their bodies, and prolong their climbing day. They also participate in team-building and goal-setting exercises to expand the reach of their learning. All of this is working toward the central mission of Betties360: to inspire confidence, well being, and community in under-represented girls through action sports, outdoor adventures and life-skill education.
