Rock Climbing, Backpacking, Ice Climbing and Alpine Mountaineering

What is UP Adventure?

We get asked this question the most. Adventure is intriguing. It adds excitement and passion to your journey in life. At UP we believe that adventure can come in many forms and activities. Rock climbing at Great Falls National Park, hiking in the Shenandoah through waterfalls, stand up paddle boarding with meditation and yoga thrown in or backcountry snowshoeing where the only footsteps you see are yours are some of the adventures UP offers. Stay connected with UP to find out the latest adventures we are offering to our community. Come outside with us and get your happy on!
