• Visiting Wall

    Events are cancelled due to COVID19, but we miss our climbers too much - so we had to get a mobile wall and go visit them!

    1) Mindbender

    2) Show-and-tell

    3) Adult chat

    We start with a short mind bender, then the kids do show-and-tell. They can share a pet, a lego project, arts and crafts, a tour around their garden, or anything they would like to talk about.

    Once the kids are past their attention span, adults hang on and talk about anything and everything. There are also breakout rooms for 1:1 or small group conversations.

    11/10/19 FUNdamental at ABC Kids Climbing

    1960 32nd Street, Boulder, CO

    After we had to cancel our Halloween Spooky Climb due to a massive snowstorm, we had to make up for the missed fun with something special - headlamp climbing! We turned most light off in a specific part of the gym and made sure that not too many kids enter all at once. It turned out great!

    Global Climbing Day

    8/24/19 ABC Kids Climbing

    Our biggest event yet - thank you everybody for coming out! This event was so popular that we had to stagger it according to age group, providing younger kids with a less crowded experience. All in all about 200 people joined us at ABC Kids Climbing, and enjoyed Kona Shaved Ice, silent auction, guessing games and activity pass! Once again, thank you ABC Kids, for making this all possible!

    Outdoor Climb - redirected to Earth Treks Golden!

    Planned for 7/20 at 3:00 pm, this Outdoor Climb had to be cancelled due to lightning and flash flood risk, but we found a warm welcome at Earth Treks Golden instead!

    Thank you to everybody who came out despite the crazy weather! Volunteers and participants showed flexibility and commitment when they drove back down from the canyon and regrouped in Earth Treks Golden.


    And so it was that our first Earth Treks event came about - thank you so much for taking us in!


    We ended up having a lot of fun. Mock lead climbs and belays, ninja warrior type challenges, spacious kids' area, seating where we enjoyed our snacks - this was great!

    FUNdamental at PURE Bouldering Gym

    1401 S. 8th Street, Colorado Springs, CO 80905

    Thank you, PURE Bouldering Gym and Gearonimo!


    This is just the perfect gym for our kids: nice outdoors area, very playful, easy as well as challenging climbs, and lots of swinging, balancing, and enjoying the sunshine. You can take your kids climbing there any time, and members get 24/7 access to the gym - the joys of being a PURE bouldering gym.


    The adjacent store Gearonimo sells used and new gear, bikes, shoes, skis, boats and whatever you may need for your next adventure. When you go, make sure you say hi to the dog and the dragon...


    Thank you Colorado Springs folks, y'all are awesome!
