Check out Rise & Recover with Natalie for a very active and stimulating yoga session. Rest & Restore with Becky is a great way to end a busy summer day.
Farewell Cindi! Many of you don't know our behind the scenes wizard Cindi Squires! She's been running our back office for 4 years and brought her experience from the Alaska Avalanche School to ensure the transition to our new facility went so smoothly. This unsung hero of our gym community is (after 49 years in the 49th State) finally electing to move. She's headed to Las Vegas to be closer to family, but is taking an extended road trip across Alaska and Canada with her 18.5 year old cat Koko first! On the list? More exploration of the Denali Highway, White Mountain, and packrafting on Beaver Creek (just to list a few). We're going to miss her dearly, and wish her an amazing summer adventure and happy happy days climbing at Red Rock. Thank you Cindi for all of your hard work over the years!

Auto Belays Are Here! Come check out our new auto belays! Perfect for getting in laps, or climbing on the roped wall when you can't find a partner, our 8 Perfect Descent auto belays have been a fantastic addition to our gym! If you haven't checked them out yet, please remember you need to complete an auto belay orientation and fill out a new waiver before you can use them. Thank you, and happy climbing!
