Staff Spotlight: Arlo

By Larissa Phillips

Have you met Arlo? He is one of our older staff members that still crushes routes indoors and out. We’re very lucky to have him. He teaches our Intro to Top Rope class, our Boomers Program, Gym-to-Crag, and Learn to Lead Outside. This fall, he'll be celebrating his 50th Climbing Anniversary.

10 Years of CityROCK

By Ange Tysdal

CityROCK Original Sign

We drove by and saw the raised fist with the setting T-wrench painted on the lime green background. A pillar as the centerpiece between walls with hard, right-angled roofs, flakes, cracks, splattered with holds and tape. “Looks pretty sweet,” Eben said with his stoic psych.  We’d both learned to climb outside on granite cracks, plugging gear.  Our only gym experience had been a humbling one for me, struggling up 5.8s and wondering why it felt so much harder than outside? I’d give indoor climbing one more try before writing it off altogether.

Battle Royale

By Lucas Bundy

As Head Routesetter at CityROCK, I’ve had a goal of wanting to host an adult sport climbing competition with a number of strong competitors, great sponsors, and a somewhat familiar redpoint format with a unique twist. I envisioned a competition that would be a highlight of our event schedule every year.
