Climbing High with the Rangers!

27 Apr

There is an awesome opportunity to train and work with some of the very best Mountaineers on the PLANET!! And it’s right here in our back yard… At Camp Frank D. Merril with the U.S. Army 5th Ranger Training Battalion in Dahlonega…

REGISTRATION/INFORMATION CLICK HERE

“Rappel off a 100 foot cliff and enter the vertical world, where voices of encouragement are silenced by the rush of adrenaline that accompanies the realization that a single climbing rope and your skill control the speed of descent through the spectacular thrill of High Adventure. Climb 200 feet up a steep mountain face where upward mobility is limited to courage, and where success is measured by the triumph of conquering jagged ledges, scaling towering peaks, and viewing the world where only Eagles and Rangers have been. Fly across a 50 foot gorge face first with only a rope, harness and air. Bridge the gap with rope pathways where your advance ropework bears the weight of travel for elevated traverses. ”

Scouts from all accross the country will travel to be with the Rangers this Summer… don’t miss out! Go here: http://bit.ly/RANGERS5 and sign up for your spot today… space is limited!

For Scouts and Venturers!

See you out there!
