Competitions will be a big highlight, bringing together climbers of different skill levels to showcase their talent. It’s a chance for young climbers to connect with others and push their limits.
Clinics and training camps will be led by experienced climbers and industry experts, sharing their knowledge and helping climbers improve their skills. Whether a beginner or an experienced climber, there will be something for everyone to learn and grow from.

Mike, Executive Director of Bend Endurance Academy, highlights the trust and confidence in EP Climbing, stating, “EP has long played a role in the climbing gym and climbing competition scene here in the US, and their commitment to creating a quality product and furthering the arena of competition climbing helped make me confident that our project was in the best hands.” Mike adds, “With EP USA being a Bend-based company, it felt like working with family. Almost every single person from EP that I have worked with on this project I have already had some form of relationship with. I’ve personally coached some of their kids, worked with some of them on producing competitions, and have met with them throughout the years at industry trade shows or climbing competitions.”
