Forge your own team of bouldering super heros in the Bouldering League
Get ready for another season of bouldering league! In this free league, we promote friendly competition in a positive and encouraging environment. While there is a competition aspect, Bouldering League is mainly about growing our community and climbing with others whom you can teach, and others from whom you can learn.
League starts October 14 or 16 and runs for six weeks.
RJ1: Thursdays at 7pm
RJ Youth Program Crag Clean-up
Our youth program climbers and coaches are getting ready for our semi-annual youth program sponsored crag clean-up. They will be out a Three Sisters Park in Evergreen October 18th from 9am to noon.

Meeting details are coming soon.
Warrior’s Way Falling & Commitment Clinic
Sunday, Oct 19th (4-9pm) at RJ1 AND Wednesday, Oct 22nd (6-11pm) at RJ2
We are excited to offer another round of the Warrior’s Way Falling & Commitment Clinic with Arno Ilgner. Arno was a pioneering climber in the 1970′s and 1980′s and has since helped hundreds of students reach that next level in climbing by managing their fears. The Warrior’s Way Clinic teaches students how to focus attention under stress, which allows climbers to better deal with doubts and improve commitment. We practice falling, movement, breathing, and resting exercises in small increments to help each student progress. All skills learned will be applied to a challenging route during the clinic. You will leave the clinic with a structured method for taking appropriate risks with diminished fear. This class is limited to 8 participants and fills quickly, so sign up soon! Prerequisites: minimum 6 months of climbing experience; comfortably climb a 5.9 in the gym without falling or hanging; being able to lead climb is not required.
Step Up Your Game
“Learn About Fear and Mental Control for Sport Performance”
Once again professional climber Matt Lloyd put on a stellar show to a maximum capacity crowd. He shared the science behind fear along with tips and tricks he has used over the years to keep his mental edge under the pressure of pushing the limits of modern rock and ice climbing grades.
Thank you to The Denver Beer Company for suppling the venue and great beers as well.
Climb Denver’s Backyard: A Day of Free Clinics, Beer, and BBQ
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!”
