For the ninth year in a row, Medicines Global will take 15 urban youth from Southern California to learn to climb with world-renowned climbers at Climb Smart 2015. The Outdoor Youth Ambassadors will camp, and rock climb for three days, from October 16-18. They will have a chance to meet with National Park Rangers who will explain the importance of National Parks.
