When you signup to compete, not only will you have an unforgettable experience, your entry fee directly supports our 501(c)(3) Youth Climbing Team, Team Scalers. Plus, you’re eligible to win rad prizes donated by our sponsors! In the last five years, Team Scalers has operated with only one coach (and a handful of volunteers.) We strive towards providing the best youth climbing program in the valley and we THANK YOU for supporting our valley’s growing team of young athletes.
The teammates, board of directors, and coaches THANK YOU!
