Our Purpose

Our Purpose

There are lots of rock climbing resources. But we're here to be the main resource for parents and kids who are interested in youth rock climbing, with a focus on competition in the United States. Newbies and veterans, we welcome you!

If you're new to climbing, coming from the worlds of baseball, soccer, gymnastics, and other mainstream youth activities, you probably don't have any idea what you're getting into. That's where we come in. We aim to provide useful resources for how to successfully, and safely, get started in youth climbing sports. We don't have all the answers, but someone out there probably does!  And, as a bonus, we'll throw in the occasional dad joke. 

You in? Great! Start with these articles:

What is competitive youth rock climbing?

How do I keep my kids safe in a rock gym? 

If you are already in the rock climbing community, we are here for you, too! We'll be posting comp tips, gear reviews, and other articles of interest to climbers and parents of climbers. We'd also love for you to give helpful advice and share your experiences so others can learn. Let's build a friendly community that helps each another navigate and enjoy the world of youth climbing.
