Outdoor Climbing 

Thanks to the Bellingham Mountaineers and the American Alpine Institute for offering outdoor climbing activities for Vamos. Following participants from their introduction to climbing indoors to tying into the rope outdoors is a great journey. Participants get to experience the joy of movement on rock and challenge themselves to move in new ways.
