Rock Climbing at Malibu

Rock climbing at Webb has boomed in recent years, thanks in part to an afternoon activity that takes repeated trips to Hangar 18, a local indoor gym. This practice gets translated to outdoor climbing with the outdoor program on the weekends, where students get the chance to practice their techniques in natural settings.  Last weekend's trip went near Malibu, where students first had to climb around a lake before getting to the site.  Special thanks to Dave Hamilton from Hangar 18 for helping with the trip, and to the faculty who led it, Ms. Blomberg and Mr. Dahlstrom.

Before top-roping, students had to scramble around a lake to get to the climbing site.  They ended up taking a dip there on the way home.
