In the summer of 2016, the Breaks officially opened five different locations throughout the park for avid rock climbers! All locations were hand-picked to give climbers a truly unique experience while impacting surrounding environments as little as possible. While five locations are opened, new routes will be created as prime locations are found! Anchors are already in place, however, the park does not provide climbing equipment.
The park is partnering with Southeast Mountains Guides, LLC to continue creating and elevating the rock climbing experience available at the park.
