We are following COVID-19 industry standards to keep you safe while pushing your limits. If you have questions about our COVID-19 practices, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Clinics

We offer 4 clinics at various times and locations throughout the summer with the goal of increasing emotional and cultural access to rock climbing spaces. This means providing education that will result in climbers from historically excluded communities feeling confident in keeping themselves safe, advocating, pushing limits, and developing deep, trusting relationships with their community.

 

While we hope to grow the ways in which we do this soon, we are starting by focusing on the groups we currently identify with. Please stay tuned to see the ways in which this reach extends.
