Rock Climbing

We offer one of the strongest climbing programs of any boarding school or high school in the country. The school's location in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire insures a multitude of opportunities to explore tons of world-class climbing routes right here in our backyard. We climb each day after school outside at places like Cannon Cliff, Cathedral Ledge and Rumney. If it looks like rain, our groups practice inside on the school's 3,500 square-foot climbing wall and bouldering cave.

The White Mountain School climbing program is highly accredited. Our staff is certified or trained by the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) and upholds the highest standard in safety. Our program is open to climbers of all ability levels, from the beginner to the serious climber. With several different groupings, we can support and challenge any athlete that enters our program.
