Cultivating climbers to crush the world’s problems.
Our core belief is that climbing changes people for the better. It really does. It is fun, and, sure, climbers tend to drive cool vans and have good-looking forearms. Beyond this there is something deeper and more primal about climbing that seems to shape a person’s heart in a positive way. We think the combination of community, physical activity, repeated failure to achieve success, and the general discipline/ethos of climbing is beneficial to all. And we want to share it. We want to foster the innate ability of climbing in children and for those wrinkled with wisdom, we hope to re-awaken the joy of climbing. Between the young and the old, everyone can benefit from the climbing experience. We fully believe, 100%, that this experience can (and will) change our community at large.
We are a boutique bouldering gym with an incredible focus on really good route setting. Our gym hosts 70-85 carefully curated bouldering problems, that are reset on a 5-week cycle. Our route setting philosophy offers a clear progression for beginners and competitive climbers alike. We craft joyful challenges for small children, and crimpy compression sequences for calloused fingers.
Our space is inspired to accommodate the little people. We’re working to find a balance between safety and freedom within our space. We have a mini-bouldering wall and 3 auto-belays to provide a place for young children to experience climbing on their own terms. Oh, and we can throw a pretty epic birthday party.
Our staff is eager to get you climbing. From gear demos, to clinics, camps to comps, we are here to help engage and grow climbers into a powerful community. See our Events page to see what is coming. We know climbing can and does change lives, we can’t wait to offer that to others.
We love to collaborate with local businesses. Currently, we are raising money for the Thompson School District PTA, providing volunteers for the upkeep of local bouldering areas, and are working with local youth organizations to provide exposure to climbing to those who need it most. If you have any ideas, please reach out!
