Route Setting Clinics

Curious about the professional pathways to becoming a route setter?

These clinics will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of route setting. Participants will learn best practices for safety and tool use, and will have the opportunity to set and forerun boulders in a variety of grades and styles.

We will discuss what a standard day of commercial setting entails, and the ways in which interested people can become more involved. Participants can expect to leave the clinic with a greater understanding of the route setting process and the avenues available to those interested in pursuing a setting career.

Family Night

Climbing with your kids just got that much better!

Don’t want to give up climbing now that you’re a parent?
Want to meet other climbers with kids who understand the challenges?

We get it! Being a parent doesn’t mean you need to stop climbing but it does mean you may need to climb differently and that’s what Family Night is all about.

  • Meet and learn from other parents.
  • Make connections and share the responsibility of supervising the kid(s) while you climb.
  • Shift your climb times to when it’s less busy in the gym.
  • Manage expectations because sometimes the kids just won’t cooperate.

Celebrating Pride Month

COMMUNITY.

Together with professionalism, integrity and adventure, community is one of our core values. To us, it means “a welcoming group of climbing enthusiasts, adventure seekers, and friends connecting through our shared interests in climbing, fitness, and fun”. 

This Pride Month we’ve taken the opportunity to reflect on what we’ve done and still need to do for LGBTQ+ folks in our communities.

Why do we celebrate Pride Month?

We recognize that diversity fuels the spirit of our staff and community. Our commitment to equity and inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, identity and experience builds a culture where difference is valued, innovation thrives and adventure is accessible to all.

What are we doing to support the LGBTQ+ community?

We are proud to be creating safe + inclusive spaces where all climbers of any gender, identity or sexual orientation feel accepted;  where you can challenge yourself, build your skills and know that this is a place where you belong.

What steps are we taking to accomplish this?

  • Listening + responding to the needs of our staff, members + community
  • Maintaining hiring practices to recruit + retain a diverse staff team
  • Advancing a staff-led diversity, equity + inclusion committee
  • Hiring experts to help identify + navigate our strengths/opportunities through discussion and trainings
  • Building action steps to hold ourselves accountable to changes we want to see

What does this look like to our community:

  • Pride Routes during the month of June
  • Period products in all bathrooms
  • Access to gender affirming bathrooms in all facilities
  • Gender inclusive categories for competitions
  • Redefining who a “climber” is, can and should be by removing “The Climbers Gym” tagline of SG’s past and building a better, more inclusive community for all

COMING SOON!

  • Progress Pride flags in all facilities (year-round)
  • Community partnerships + meet-up groups

We’re listening.
