what's shakin' at shaker rocks in august?

As we all manage these challenging times with diligence and awareness of our health and of the health of those around us, it has been heartening to see so much cooperation and compassion within our community. We’ve enjoyed seeing new and familiar faces since our reopening two months ago. Those who have tentatively come in have said how good they feel about the measures we have taken and have quickly become regulars again. We hope to see more of you knowing that our protocols for masks, sanitation and distancing have made everyone feel comfortable in our space. 


Thank you for helping us all climb safely - we are so grateful to have you back.

We are so thankful for how considerate everyone has been in following our COVID-19 policies. If you still find yourself feeling a bit uneasy about climbing indoors, here is a short article that might put those thoughts at ease. Please enjoy this quick read regarding the relationship between indoor climbing and coronavirus.

P.E. Rocks

While many school districts are doing their best to handle the current pandemic, we know that many gym and P.E. programs will be directly (and negatively) affected once classes begin again. Luckily, we have the solution with P.E.Rocks! Starting in September, we will hold weekly 2 hour P.E. classes where climbers from grades 1-12 can engage in a non-contact and more socially-distant gym environment while still having just as much fun!

School is right around the corner & so are our Youth Programs!

All of our programs are back, but please keep in mind that class size will be limited for everyone’s safety

junior & senior climbing club

Not interested in committing to a competitive team? Join our Climbing Club!
Club climbing is a non-competitive way for climbers to have fun together. Students are grouped by age and will train together once a week; learning tips, tricks, techniques, and unique problem solving in a team-centered environment.

preschool classes

For all of our tiny climbers…

Little Goat class allows you to team up with your tiniest climber and get on the mats, get on the walls, and have a good time together. These activities, when exercised at a young age, will help to enhance and develop your child’s motor and listening skills. (Ages 3-4)

Big Goat class is a step up from Little Goat. In these classes, children will participate in a wider variety of climbing experiences. Activities will enhance agility, balance and coordination as you watch your little climber grow and become more independent on the walls. (Ages 4-5)

Reminder: We will be reintroducing $5 freeze fee for memberships beginning September, 1.
