Eats, Beats, and Treats

** Party was awesome! Here are some photos **

Our annual Grillin’ and Chillin party is on Saturday, October 15th. We love our community and this is a way for us to share the love. Come out to meet the community – bring your family and friends too – and enjoy good food, beer, contests, and, of course, climbing! We’re all about being inclusive so this party is for any and everyone, but space is limited. Are you ready to party?

Tickets* go on sale from October 1st.

  • $10 ($5 for members) – early bird price (before Oct 7th)
  • $12 ($7 for members) – after Oct 7th or at the door on Oct 15th

*Tickets include food and beer. Admission is free for members! If you’re a member, the ticket price is only for food and beer – if you don’t plan to eat or drink, there is no charge and we will not issue a ticket. Tickets can be purchased at the gym during opening hours.

There’s going to be a lot happening at the party from 6pm to midnight… here’s a break down:


Local food truck regulars, Chick Pea, will be serving up delicious vegetarian Israeli food… Rotem and Itamar are our new best friends!

Dan’s going to be taking off his owner hat and putting on a chef hat keeping the BBQ going all night long… while our go-to foodie provider and amazing socializer, Browns Social House from New Westminster, will be party with us and helping out with cooking, organizing and serving!


Hops, Suds, Brew – whatever you want to call it, we’re lucky to have Vancouver’s Red Truck Beer on tap to keep the beer flowing throughout the night. (Please drink responsibly… and if you plan to drink, don’t drive!)

Costume Prize

Tank tops and shorts/capri pants are standard climbing wear these days… but if you ever wanted to turn it up a notch, this is your chance! We’ll be handing out prizes for both guys and girls on the best costume you can come up with. The only criteria is to keep it tasteful and family-friendly!

Dyno Comp

Who doesn’t like watching or doing dynos? We’re setting up a dyno comp (men’s, women’s and under-14 categories)… get ready to impress Hayden Jones and Andrew Wilson, our route-setters and dyno judges!

If you want to join the dyno comp at the party, make sure to arrive early. The comp will start at 6:30pm until 8pm. You can sign up at the front desk from 6-6:30pm.

Here’s a video from last year of what to expect:
