Rock Climbing trips spend 1-2 days learning the basics of outdoor rock climbing.  The experienced climbing leaders will teach you everything you need to know: from how to put on a climbing harness to how move up the rock wall.  On the climbing days, you will have the opportunity to challenge yourself and try different routes, and also encourage the other members of the group as they tackle their own challenges. If you get hooked on Rock Climbing after a climbing on Frosh Trip, you can visit the OA Climbing Wall back on campus for free Open Hours several days a week, or sign up for an introductory rock climbing class during the semester.

On the days that you aren't climbing, you'll be backpacking and camping along the Appalachian Trail.  The climbing sites are located a short hike from the trail, so you'll have the chance to explore the local landscape from a variety of perspectives and experiences.
