Terrace, Climbing & Caving
Are you afraid of heights but still interested in trying your adventurous side at hanging onto a granite rock? Well do not despair because there is an enjoyable opportunity only a short 10 minute drive from the city of Terrace and a 15 minute hike up to Copper Mountain granite slab.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of enjoying some evening sunshine and a beautiful view of the Terrace Skeena valley while bouldering the Copper Mountain granite.
With only a pair of rock climbing shoes I enjoyed the thrill and challenge of bouldering, a style of rock climbing in the horizontal direction without ropes and harnesses. Scary it sounds, however bouldering is a style of climbing emphasizing power, strength, and dynamics only a couple feet off the ground. You feel the workout on your entire body while enjoying a fun sport without the heights!
Try it out if you are feeling adventurous!!
