Youth Club (11-14 year olds)
Oct 22 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

The River Rock Youth Club is for youth climbers looking to explore the sport. Our coaching staff will emphasize the fundamentals of climbing and fitness in a fun and relaxed environment. Club sessions focus on balance, movement, strength training, communication and mental strategy. This program offers a lot less commitment than our competitive team with plenty of opportunity to progress in climbing technique.

Due to the popularity of the program, we are now offering two sessions: Mondays for kids aged 11-14, and Wednesdays for kids aged 7-10.

Fall Season: September 10 through December 10, excluding November 19.
Meets Mondays from 5:30-7 pm.

Reach Your Peak Climbing Fitness Program
Oct 22 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Reach Your Peak (RYP) is an eight-week climbing fitness training program that utilizes a combination of roped climbing and bouldering (non-roped climbing) for climbers to improve their skills and reach their personal fitness goals.The program was developed utilizing auto-belay devices for the roped climbing components, so no need to have a climbing partner.
Any level of climber can participate! Improve your overall health, improve endurance, and strengthen already existing skill-sets. Of course, there are other unintended side effects that have been seen from following this program:

  • Healthy weight-loss
  • Overall feeling of increased “coolness”
  • New-found or renewed passion for climbing
  • Increased popularity
  • Less tired and sluggish at work
  • Better nights of sleep

Each weekly session will also have additional workouts or “homework” that will require you to make additional visits to the gym before you start the next program week. We recommend that participants are members of the gym for the duration of the 8 week program.

Click HERE to sign up.

No additional cost to participate over regular admission to the gym or gym membership.You can either go it alone or participate as a group in our RYP work-out sessions. Our staff will be available during the organized sessions to answer questions, give support, or help guide technique.
