Tahoe locals and twin brothers Fenton and Maverick have been two of our most dedicated climbers this month. Though they had never climbed before, they’ve learned climbing safety and skills, and are now able to climb up the wall independently.

When asked what their favorite part of climbing is, Maverick immediately said, “You get to climb big heights and you get to float on the rope.” Fenton exclaimed, “Everything … and chalk!!!”

Besides using chalk to make their hands extra grippy and draw on the wall, Fenton and Maverick have also had fun stealing their instructors shoes and hiding them on the wall out of reach. We’re excited to see them keep climbing up and monkeying around!
