Recently, Ben Kumli, a faculty Lecturer for San Francisco State’s Recreation, Parks and Tourism Department, brought nearly twenty students to Mission Cliffs. The students had a great experience climbing at the gym with many of them speaking about the supportive environment and the challenges they were able to overcome. "They are still talking about how awesome it was!" said Kumli.
“Mission Cliffs was an amazing experience. I was able to push myself past limits I never thought I would have been able to. The environment was a great place to learn climbing, because everyone is so positive and encouraging.”-- Jessica C.
“Going to mission cliffs was a great experience. When I first walked in I was very intimidated, but the staff and everyone else were very encouraging and friendly. After my time at Mission Cliffs I am confident enough to go to any rock climbing gym! Had a great time and can't wait to go again!”-- Kelly
“It felt great climbing for the first time knowing that I was completely safe. There were plenty of routes to choose from so I could opt for comfort or a challenge. Mission Cliffs provided the perfect environment to build my confidence on the wall before heading outside. I came, I saw, I conquered. Thanks Mission Cliffs.”-- Crystal
Touchstone is proud to support students groups as they develop their studies and experience rock climbing for the first time.
