Climbing Education & Youth Climbing
The Central Wyoming Climbers' Alliance, in close partnership with Elemental Performance and Fitness, Wild Iris Mountain Sports, Lander Parks and Recreation, the National Outdoor Leadership School, Exum Mountain Guides, and other invested local businesses, aims to increase the number of Fremont County youth experiencing rock climbing both indoors and outdoors. We support and create youth climbing education, coaching, and mentoring programs that enhance fitness, problem solving, self esteem, leadership, and environmental awareness. See below for information on our various programs.

Youth Climbing Classes are for those new to climbing as well as youth with more experience. Program coaches work with your child to improve their movement, strength, technique, and overall understanding of the sport.
The Climbing Team is for intermediate and advanced youth. We dedicate our time to becoming better climbers and achieving individual goals. You can sign up for the full season (5 months) or 1 month at a time.
