Youth Clubs

Mission

Our goal is to create an atmosphere in which kids of all ages and skill levels feel comfortable, motivated, and excited about developing their skills, passion and valuable habits for climbing.

For these programs we do not take sign-ups online. Please call (970-999-5596) or come by the gym to get your child signed up to participate in any of these programs.

Community builds passion.

Levi Van Weddingen
Climbing has provided me with a way to express myself and live an active and healthy outdoor lifestyle. Working with kids has been an amazing opportunity to share my love and psych for climbing. My goal is to help kids grow through climbing and have fun!
Will DeMartino
I have been a climber for 12 years, and have been involved in kids programs for 3 years. I love teaching younger kids valuable skills that go beyond climbing and that they can apply in real life. Most of all I love the outdoors.
Sam Hoffecker
