OAS offers climbing experiences, lessons and outings for all people of all abilities. Experiences are catered to meet the individual’s needs and goals. Adaptive climbing experiences are available to participants ages 7 and up. OAS has trained staff and volunteers as well as cutting edge adaptive equipment to accommodate a wide range of abilities.
OAS has all the equipment you need to adapt your climbing experience including a variety of harnesses, the Wellman 4:1 system, a seated harness and the Evolv prosthetic foot/climbing shoe and much more. Climbing shoes are provided by partner organizations.
Thank you to Bend Rock Gym, Clifford Agocs (Smith Rock Climbing School) & Metolius for supporting this program!
INCLUSIVE CLIMBING CLUB:
This inclusive climbing club is a space for people of all abilities to climb with each other in a fun indoor setting. Differing from its prior setup, the idea is that all climbers (volunteers and participants) can climb together, learning how to support each other just like any other group of people climbing together. An OAS instructor will be there to instruct and aid beginner climbers. Advanced sign up is required.
Cost: $10 (including gear rentals)
Schedule: First Tuesday of Every Month Year Round 4:30 – 6:30 pm
