My last course of the season proved to be a very rewarding, challenging and fun expedition to climb Madera Peak. In just short of a week's time my co-instructor and I were able to deliver the heart of a true Outward Bound experience: solo, peak climb, rock climb, and some challenging days navigating on and off trail while carrying heavy packs. I really enjoyed my time with the Veterans and I think they got a lot out of the experience. Here's a link to an interactive map of our route, provided free by Enjoy!
