In this video, Rebecca Schild and Chris Barlow introduce their school Earthstone Institute, a semester climbing school. Earthstone’s Climber Corps programs are based on a civic recreation model. Students learn and practice an extensive climbing curriculum. They also take a place-based environmental studies seminar. Finally, all students work on hands-on conservation project in the places they climb, giving back to the climbing resource and community. With the help of the Explore Fund, Chris and Becca will be able to make their courses more affordable, and thereby more accessible to a wider audience.
