The Rock @ Youth Leadership Training Center


Located at the Youth Leadership Training Center in San Leandro, The Rock is a 32-foot natural looking rock with numerous routes to climb. Climbing routes vary in difficulty so everyone can have fun no matter what their experiance level is.

Unit Climbs:

Units may make a reservation to come and climb for a 2-3 hour session. Units should come prepared with adults who are willing to learn and able to belay climbers. Instruction on belaying will be provided at the start of your climb. Cub Scout units must provide adult belayers as Cub Scouts cannot belay each other. Boy Scouts, Venture Scouts and Varsity Scouts may learn to belay.

Scouting Groups - $12 per person with a minumum of 10 climbers.

Non-Scouting Groups - $16 per person with a minimum of 10 climbers.
A hold-harmless agreement and proof of insurance is required for all non-Scout climbs.
