Summer Solstice Party

Let's kick off summertime a few days early with live music from Joshy Soul, local artisans, food from Rumsy's, local brews, and perhaps most importantly - our Impact Coalition Partners!

If you haven't already, this is a perfect opportunity to get to know the local non-profits we have chosen to partner with by matching a $1.00 optional addition to your monthly membership dues. All four non-profits - CAWS, the SLCA, Volunteers of America | Utah Chapter, and Utah Clean Energy - are up to all the good in our neighborhood, but they need consistent help from amazing locals like yourselves in order to achieve their goals and improve the valley for all of us.

Free for members, guests welcome with a day pass​.


'Merica Ping Pong Tournament

Nothing is more ‘Merican than Ping Pong and BBQ’s. Well, at least BBQ’s.

Our 2nd annual ‘Merica-themed Ping Pong Tourney will feature live music, grilling in the courtyard, a yuuuuge cash purse, participant prizes, an opportunity drawing, and more. Well, not much more actually, but doesn’t that all sound awesome?!

We will have a Beginner/Intermediate and Intermediate/Advanced heat, so if you aren't a pro yet don't worry, you'll play against others who still call it 'Ping Pong' and not 'Table Tennis'.

Registration opens soon!


Global Climbing Day - Free Climbing For Everyone

Join us to celebrate the walls that unite us, not divide us.

In 2018, Global Climbing Day was August 18, 2018. It was a day full of FREE CLIMBING, live music from Joshy Soul and The Cool, a poster signing with Margo Hayes, food, drinks, and fun! The North Face also donated $1 to the Khumbu Climbing Center for every climber who comes to the gym that day!

End of Summer Party

Whether you are mourning the impending end of warmer days or celebrating the impending beginning of snowy ones, come do it with us for our last party in our courtyard before we put away the picnic tables, hammocks and yard games and gear up for (cross your fingers) amazing powder days.

The season will end as it began - Live music, local artisans, Rumsy's goodies and brews. If you are incredibly ambitious, use this as an opportunity to start (and finish!) your holiday shopping! If that sentence just sent shivers down your spine way too early, just come enjoy handmade crafts and a little camaraderie and reflect on your amazing summer adventures.

Free for members, guests welcome with a day pass​.

Every year around Halloween, local and national climbers get together at The Front for the Deadpoint Bouldering Competition!
