Fall Bouldering League

The gym’s most popular semi-annual climbing series returns for another season the last week of October (each gym’s schedule to be determined soon). This is a great event for EVERYONE. Each week we will set 7 boulder problems for climbers from beginner to expert. Climbers will be split into teams to take on the week’s problems. The team with the most combined points at the end of the series wins.

Over the years we have had members tell us The League is a great way to learn technique, train, and meet new friends. If you have any questions or are just curious, stop in and try it out. The League is totally free and we would love to have you join us!

The annual Winter Wonderland Party at RJ1 was a great success this year. In the spirit of the holidays we wanted to take the time to say thank you and give back to all our great customers.

 

If you missed it there was climbing oriented holiday festivities for individuals, couples, and families with special twist. For the kids the Grinch Gift Grab had to be the winner for the night. Adults were able to get in plenty of climbing, dry tooling, and a bit of pad stacking.

All of you that took a photo in the Photo Booth you can find them here:

Climb Denver's Backyard

42 climbers showed up at the American Alpine Headquarters in Golden, Colorado on June 21st for the free “Climb Denver’s Backyard” event hosted by RJ, the American Alpine Club, and Outer Edge Performance. They headed out to climbing areas in Clear Creek Canyon and at North Table Mountain in order to cover topics just as building top rope anchors, an introduction to climbing outdoors, leading outdoor routes, and technique workshops.
The day concluded with a group of 70 gathering to enjoy some free BBQ and beer, compete in a crash-pad-stacking competition, and to watch a slideshow presented by professional climber Matt Segal.

Thank you to those who came out for the festivities, and to our event sponsors! It was a great day, but don’t take our word for it, check out reviews from some of the participants:

“All in all, I’d give the event five stars and would love to do it again if given the chance!”

“Aleya and Travis were awesome! Learned a lot about crag etiquette and safety. They also made me feel very comfortable about climbing outside. Wish we could have climbed more routes but thanks for a great learning experience!”

“The class was amazing. Mike was very instructive and payed close attention to each and every one of us to make sure we had the basics correct. Thank you so much! I look forward to climbing with you!”
