Mankind's feeble climbing skills and inability to digest delicious tin cans are two ways in which evolution left humans inferior to goats.

Since 2005, the intrepid adventure junkies at 12 Finger Adventure have provided rookie thrill-seekers with fundamental training and hands-on, outdoors experience.
