The Rope Climbing Area in Peschke Field featured three varied rope-climbing challenges for Garden Ground Mountain visitors. Scouts and Venturers could:

1) Climb a rope by learning to adjust the position of prusik knots, using them as hand and footholds as they climbed higher.

2) Climb a rope with the aid of wide, wooden discs spaced up the rope’s length.

3) Climb up a rope ladder on wooden rungs attached with marlin spike hitches.
