Alaska Rock Gym  ESTD. 1995, Climbing, Yoga studio, Fitness facility, and Conference room. Take a look

Over the weekend the Alaska Rock Gym's competitive climbing team traveled to Bend, Oregon to compete in the USAClimbing Regional Competition and we couldn't be happier with how the whole team performed! All the hard work and practice, in addition to the comp specific training they've been doing this season, is really paying off! This is a huge shout out to all of ARG's team members but also we'd like to list our top finishers: Brendan Wilkins 1st place in Male C Henrik Keskula 3rd place in Male C Freyja Boyd 3rd pace in Female C Veronika Reed 3rd place in Female B Roman Jabaay 2nd place in Male B
Stay tuned as we will be traveling to Portland for Divisionals in January. Go Team ARG!

The holiday season is officially upon us. In addition to being closed on December 25 and January 1, the gym will be closing at 6pm on December 24th and 31st. Perhaps its a good chance to spend some time with friends and family (pets included), or maybe get outside and play. At the very least take it as a mandatory day off from the Alaska Rock Gym, and give your tendons the gift of rest. Happy Holidays!

We hope everyone in Alaska is safe and sound after that massive earthquake. We are currently closed for the time being. We will be checking the structural integrity of the walls and cleaning up all the chalk that was shaken loose. Please keep safe and we hope to see you soon!

Now that Youth Comp on Saturday is over, the ARG setters are working hard to get the boulder area and the lead feature back to the way we all like - lots & lots of great new problems and lead routes on every wall! Come in next week and check it out!

Just a reminder: The Alaska Rock Gym will be opening 2 hours late this Saturday, November 17th, to accommodate the annual Youth Comp Team Boulder Competition. The doors will be open for regular business at 12pm.

Come brush up on your footwork, body positioning, and route reading skills with Gus Barber, our 'Basic Climbing Movement' instructor. Regardless of where you want to take your climbing, Gus will help you gain a better grasp on the core fundamentals. While he has only been climbing for a little over 4 years, his resume is jam packed with impressive achievements! Not only has he made it to the podium in the last 6 local competitions he's participated in, he recently nabbed the second ascent of Full King Size (5.12c) at Wiener Lake. A true Alaskan climber, he gets after it in the alpine too. This summer he helped establish a new free route on the previously unclimbed east face of Caliban in the remote Arrigetch, as well as a line up an unnamed peak in the Talkeetnas in 2016. Equally comfortable at clipping bolts in the gym, topping out Boulders at Hatcher Pass, or jamming steep cracks in Squamish, Gus can help you level up.
Basic Climbing Movement is held every Wednesday from 6:30p - 8:30p and is free for members or $22 for non-members (includes day pass). Register online, over the phone, or at the front desk today!
