The “School of Rock” met for the third consecutive year not too long ago. “The School,” as it is affectionately called, was born as an opportunity for some of my elementary school teaching partners to try out the sport of rock climbing. WenatcheeOutdoors editor Andy Dappen was on the inaugural trip in 2008 and posted a report called “School of Rock” worth reading on the website. My wife, Janet, and I have hosted this event now about a half-dozen times over three summers. A core group seems to come back each year while others try climbing just once to see what it’s all about. This year’s group were all back from previous years and it was gratifying to see how everyone has gradually improved their skill and confidence level.
