Climbing Tower

GoliathOpening281Learning to trust while pushing yourself past your perceived boundaries is a peak experience that creates an enduring memory. Our "Goliath the Giant" climbing tower is the unique centerpiece of the Five Pines outdoor education program. Designed by Five Pines and Exquisite Homes Design Services, with handholds and routes by Nicros Climbing, using challenge course building standards and in compliance with all local and state building codes, this tower inspires awe, challenges on an immediate level, and excites the imaginations of the Michiana community. So, are you ready for adventure? We are!
