A Physically Challenging Experience, EVS Rock Climbing Wall

The Essex Valley School Physical Education department has an exciting new addition to their program!  They recently added a 20-foot-high state-of-the-art rock climbing wall in the gymnasium!  The rock climbing wall features four different routes of varying difficulty, and an auto-belay system.  This allows one teacher to safely monitor up to four students at a time.  Donning a safety harness and helmet, students can climb nearly to the ceiling of the gymnasium on a route of their choosing, developing their technique from novice to expert.  This unique and challenging experience is sure to encourage some fun and healthy competition, while students also get a great workout!
