DULUTH, MN -

Climbers of all ages had the chance to defy gravity while rock climbing at Ely's Peak.

Saturday afternoon, the Duluth Climbers Coalition hosted "Flock to the Rock" where children and adults could rock climb with gear and guidance for free.

Around one hundred climbers signed up to scale the peak.

Safety harnesses, helmets, and climbing shoes were provided.

Lucas Kramer with the Coalition says the Northlands provide people with an important opportunity to explore the outdoors.

"To bring the community together, to show and develop a connection to our important places like Ely's Peak, are natural places, which are so unique in Duluth because they're right here in the heart of the city," Kramer said.

This is the third annual "Flock to the Rock" event and Kramer says people can expect to return next year.
