Team Scalers

is a youth climbing team whose mission is to foster a love of climbing in our local youth by developing self-confidence, ethics, and a sense of community pride while practicing stewardship of the public lands we share.

Through our programming and mentor-style coaching, we strive to set a strong foundation for a life-long passion for climbing. Young athletes have the opportunity to build confidence, have fun, refine body awareness, build comradery with their teammates, and cultivate transferable life skills such as resilience to failure and creative problem solving.
