Big wall climbers in Yosemite National Park traditionally congregate and stay in the Park’s Camp 4 camping area. Not only is this area ideal for staging climbs; it is also home to great bouldering routes and problems. Camp 4 also provides opportunities for flexibility and strength training. In fact, Yosemite climbers often train at Camp 4 for overall fitness, to improve their skills or during bad weather.

To address the overwhelming epidemic of obesity and inactivity in our community, we launched a counter movement called Camp 4 inspired by Yosemite. On Wednesday afternoons from 3-6:30 pm, Mountain Challenge’s backyard is open for recreational exercise. MC students, faculty and staff as well the general public can climb the Alpine Tower, boulder in the climbing cave, participate in a group fitness class, or design an individualized workout using our kettlebells and resistance bands. We’re basically turning ourselves into an outdoor fitness facility—and a pretty sweet one at that.
