It’s that time of year again! Dust off your climbing shoes and get ready for the YKCC’s climbing festival. The festival will be held on May 6th at the YKCC gym and will include our annual competition, free climbing lessons for beginners, a BBQ, and prize giveaways.
We’ll have 30 new routes set by our mystery route setter. That means our current routes won’t be up for long. Climb them while you can!
This is a family-friendly event. Bring the kids, bring your parents – no experience required!
Our competitions are open to all skill levels, even absolute beginners. You can learn about the process here: YKCC Competition Format
Love climbing at the YKCC gym, but don’t come enough for a monthly pass? Grab a 10 Punch Pass and save 10% off our regular drop-in fee.
Adult – $90
Youth – $45
Route setting school is open to the public, but preference will be given to YKCC volunteers and members. YKCC volunteers are strongly encouraged to attend.
RSVP to ykclimbingclub at gmail dot com so we can confirm a place for you.
To all the Yellowknife Climbing Club members who have supported our efforts to get a new climbing wall – especially everyone who showed their support by coming to city hall and donning club attire on Dec. 8 – thanks!
Council decided to support the club’s bid for a new climbing wall and is contributing $160,000 to the cause.
The project is estimated to cost $232,050 to build, and the YKCC has approximately $20,000 to donate immediately. The next step will be to raise the remaining $52,000 needed for the project.
City budgets $160K for climbing wall at Yellowknife Fieldhouse
Free climbing this Sunday afternoon. A non-perishable food item gets you a 2-for-1 climbing coupon. Thanks to the NWT Recreation and Parks Association for making this event possible.
Remember to come out to City Hall on Thursday, December 8th for the budget deliberations. FREE BEER!
