7 Day Climb & Backpack in Southern Arizona

Have you ever seen the morning light hit high desert rock? If you’re up early enough, you’ll be fortunate to witness the alpenglow that spreads itself across the east facing crags of southern Arizona!

By embarking on an whirlwind week of desert climbing, backpacking, and camping, you’ll forever be a member of the first annual Outdoor Adventure Experience Spring Break excursion. Step outside your comfort zone OR grab your shoes and harness; southern Arizona offers the perfect mix of challenges for all skill levels facilitated by OAE’s talented senior class leaders.

Come to an information session or reach out to us at OAE@loyola.edu or 410-617-5437 with questions or to sign up!
