To support our climbing team members, they receive a 15% discount on any climbing shoes, harnesses, or belay equipment purchase from our pro-shop (this discount is limited to purchases made for the use of the TEAM MEMBER ONLY, it is NOT to be used for family or friends of the team member).

*Team enrollment requires Crag membership in addition to team fees. Competition registration fees are not included. Coaching support of 3 local USAC climbing competitions each season (Bouldering and Sport/Speed) is included in the team fee. Additional coaching expenses and travel fees apply for supporting regional, divisional, and national competitions attended by our athletes.

Team Yeti members are required to attend a minimum of 2 local events and the Front Range Regional Championships each season. Click HERE for the USAC Front Range Region home page and schedule of competitions.

Children enrolled in programs at Übergrippen (including but not limited to Akademie, clubs, teams, camps, after school programs) will be climbing with other children. Children will often be climbing partners for each other.  This means YOUR CHILD WILL BE BELAYED BY ANOTHER CHILD ENROLLED IN THE PROGRAM AND YOUR CHILD WILL BELAY OTHER CHILDREN. If you are not comfortable with this, please do not enroll your child in our group programs. We offer private guided climbing (fees apply) and can also instruct parents on these same belay skills (enroll in our adult Crag Experience class) so that you can supervise your child’s climbing experience directly.
