2017 description: 'If your crew is interested in rock climbing, this CLIMBING TREK will be their first choice! This trek will give you an opportunity to climb at both Miners Park and Cimarroncito. Your two day stay at Cimarroncito will give you a chance to climb their legendary rock routes and expand hands on learning experience. Climb, rappel, and test your knot skills in the Anchor Rodeo. Hike through Shaefers Pass on your way to the Demonstration Forest and Waite Phillips' Hunting Lodge. Your two day stay at Cimarroncito will give you a chance to climb their legendary rock routes and expand your climbing knowledge. In addition to the regular routes, you'll have a chance to prove your skills on several new climbs during Advanced Rock Climbing Instruction. From there, head north, across the Cimarron River and up to Head of Dean for challenge events with your team. Drop into Miranda for the Mountain Man Rendezvous on your way to Ute Meadows. The summit of Baldy Mountain awaits! After a successful climb, tour the mine at French Henry before heading back to Ute Meadows. For one final climb, stop into the Continental Tie & Lumber Company at Pueblano, and use your rope skills on their spar poles. Join the Conservation Department for some trail work at Flume Canyon on your way to a well deserved root beer in Ponil's cantina. Cap off your adventure with a Chuckwagon Dinner and Cantina Show. Catch the bus to Base Camp the following morning from Ponil Turnaround.'

2016 description: 'If your crew is interested in rock climbing, this CLIMBING TREK will be their first choice! This trek will give you an opportunity to climb at both Dean Cow and Cimarroncito. Your two day stay at Cimarroncito will give you a chance to climb the standard rock routes and give you a hands on learning experience, before providing you with an opportunity to climb several newly established routes not previously used at Philmont. Start your trek with a cool root beer at the Ponil cantina before spending the night at Bent. Hike over Wilson Mesa on your way to climb spar poles, cut cross ties, and enjoy the Company Meeting Campfire at Pueblano before camping at Pueblano Ruins for the night. Next, hike the South Ponil Creek to French Henry and explore Lucien Maxwell's Aztec Mine on your way to historic Baldy Town. A two day stay at Baldy Town will give you time to climb Baldy Mountain and throw tomahawks at Miranda. Then, hike to Head of Dean to participate in challenge events that will bring your crew together. Continue your journey to Dean Cow, where your crew will participate in the first round of rock climbing & rappelling. You will also test your knot skills at an “Anchor Rodeo." Practice those knots on your way to Harlan where you will shoot shotguns and race burros after dinner. You will then work on a trail project with the Conservation Department before camping at Devil's Wash Basin. From there, hike to Cimarroncito for your second day of rock climbing. See if you can make it around the climbing wall and test your knots with the Cimarroncito staff. Put those knot skills to use during the advanced rock climbing instruction on your second day, climbing several new routes near Cimarroncito. Be sure to hike through Hidden Valley and by Window Rock before touring Waite Phillips Hunting Lodge. Continue to the Cimarroncito Reservoir and Demonstration Forest on your way to the Cimarroncito Turnaround. Next stop… Base Camp!'
