Having a little adventure

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

White Rock Canyon is filled with potential to attract climbers in and out of state. For instance, it offers a full-gambit of climbing – sport, top rope and “trad” or traditional climbing. It is easily accessible from Los Alamos and is suitable for those who are venturing out of the gym rock wall for the first time.Despite its potential, not many big, out-of-town groups have come to the canyon; until now. Twelve members of the Towson University Climbing Club from Baltimore, Ma., arrived Thursday and stayed through Saturday to scale the canyon walls.Club secretary Liz Davenport explained she discovered the area through the Los Alamos Mountaineers website.She explained the website was helpful; it contained a lot of detailed information about the different climbs in the area.Additionally, she got in contact with Kai Davis, vice president of the Mountaineers and climbing school director, for assistance on where to climb.This is a big step for the club, Davenport said.
