Mark your calendars for Saturday December 6 at 4pm for the annual Winter Wonderland Party at RJ1. In the spirit of the holidays we want to take the time to say thank you and give back to all our great customers.  All ages and abilities are encouraged to attend.

We are planning some holiday festivities for individuals, couples, and families with special climbing twists. It means food, drink, pad stacking, tree decorating, tyroleans, santa hats, human wrecking balls, and highlines. Stay tuned to social media as we share footage of us prepping the gym for this not to be missed party.

We hope that you will help us share the holiday spirit with children not as fortunate as us.  We have teamed up with A Precious Child Foundation to collect donations, of either a monetary sum or a small unwrapped gift.  This will all be used to help kids in the Colorado area to have the Christmas they deserve.

Entry is to the party is free to all members.  Non members are $15.

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!”
