Climbing is one of the best ways for a teen to gain confidence and have a great time with their friends. Our guides and instructors believe in helping young adults find a passion in rock climbing, all while building the skills, learning to mitigate risk and reaching for success with every hold. After all, the most basic definition of climbing is upward movement.

Climbing is an individual sport that allows students to grow at his or her own pace. Our courses cater to each individual’s needs and are taught in a highly supportive group environment. Any level of climber will be challenged but not overwhelmed.

BRC’s policies allow teenagers ages 12 and up to climb and belay without an adult’s supervision, but like any customer, we expect these climbers to have the climbing etiquette, risk management skills, and mature responsibility that we would expect out of any of our members. Check out our Teen Classes and Programs below to find the right fit for you or your teen.

When bringing youth climbers, not in programs please visit our Kid Policies page.
