Oncology Caregivers | Rock Climbing

The Adirondack Mountains offer six million acres of classic long climbs, warm swimming holes, and wandering tree-lined trails. Spend a week rock climbing with your First Descents family and the trusted guides at Alpine Endeavors at this iconic park! Downtime will be spent at a beautiful local lodge near Lake Placid where you’ll enjoy delicious meals, campfires, and, more than likely, lots of laughs.
