ROCK Project Tour | Denver
(For more information on the ROCK Project, visit the Access Fund website!

The ROCK Project Tour continues in Denver for a first of its kind climbing, advocacy, and education event celebrating the climbing life. Join the local climbing community in the front range, pro-athletes, Earth Treks, the Boulder Climbing Community, and REI for this exclusive event, which includes clinics with professional climbers and guides, presentations, and parties! Get psyched to be a part of the ROCK Project movement!  *All participants will leave with tips and tricks that will help them be a better climber along with tools and skills to help take care of the climbing environment. Together we can put the ROCK Project Pact into practice and keep our favorite outdoor climbing areas open and protected.

*Note: The ROCK Project Tour clinics focus on the transition from climbing indoors to outdoors within the trad, sport, and bouldering disciplines. Ideal participants have intermediate level experience climbing indoors at a minimum. If participating in the trad or sport clinic participants must successfullly pass the Earth Treks belay test to participate. We welcome climbers with more experience outdoors and will do our best to teach to each individual based on their current skill level.

Clinic Options

Participate in clinics with pro athletes and seasoned climbing instructors in an intimate setting. Expect one-on-one attention to help you dial in your climbing skills and learn how to put the ROCK Project Pact into practice. All clinics will include ROCK Project curriculum designed to teach you the skills necessary to minimize your impact each time you go climbing, along with opportunities to take your climbing skills and technique to the next level! There are 25 slots available for each clinic track. Participants will sign up for ONE clinic option (Sport, Trad/Alpine, or Bouldering) and stay with that group all day Saturday.  Once the 25 slots fill up in a given clinic track it will say “not available” and you will need to choose a different clinic track.  All participants will get the chance to interact with all of the athletes on Saturday and Sunday, so if the clinic track you want is full, definitely sign up for a different one and be a part of the event!
