Adult Program

Boomers Program

The Boomers group is for climbers ages 50+ who want to climb with other like-minded individuals under the guidance of an experienced coach. The priority of the Boomers is fun, friendship, and improving our climbing. The Coaches provide clinics on a regular basis on various topics, such as fundamental climbing movement, techniques for climbing on overhangs, projecting, movement initiation and movement centers, and drills to practice on your own. Expect to learn various injury-prevention methods, practice strength training specific to climbing, and have fun in a low key setting and receive one-on-one coaching on a regular basis.

Boomer’s experience ranges from novice to very experienced. Whether you are a novice or very experienced, the coaches cater to all experience levels. If you are a novice, your climbing will rapidly improve. If you are experienced, your climbing will be refined and polished and perhaps improve a grade.

If you are over 50 years old and would like to find climbers to get out with this is the program for you. No experience is necessary, but if you participate in this program you will gain some!
