What's involved: Two days of coached climbing and training as well as one day of suggested group training with a written plan. There will be accountability through online training logs and access to an online training plan so you can keep on track and catch up to the club if you miss a day.

There are 8 spots available this time around. Register HERE.
 

PRIDE

Squamish Pride is happening on Sunday, September 15th. To celebrate and spread some love we've printed these special edition G-Up stickers. We will be giving these stickers away for FREE but there is a small catch - you must correctly answer a LBGTQ rights trivia question! 

Back to the Plastic

Join us on Wednesday, October 9th for the second annual friendly fall boulder competition. There will be 30 NEW problems set for this evening and we have tonnes of rad prizes to give away. 

Same format as last year - climb as many problems as you want in 2 hours and record your top scores.

Tickets will be on sale shortly online and at the front desk. Follow our Facebook page for updates!
