This event is being organized by the UI Center on Disabilities and Human Development (CDHD) – THANK YOU!

We have a few courageous climbers on the roster!  We still have room for more courageous climbers, so please, help us spread the word.

If you have not completed a registration packet, please contact the event coordinator, Sophie Spanbauer at to receive a packet.

IMPORTANT!  Anyone attending the event, regardless of whether or not you are climbing, needs to complete (1) the facility waiver and make sure you are included on (2) our waiver at the bottom of the application.  This includes parents, coaches, first responders, etc.

There is an event flyer attached to this email, please print it out and hang it in your friend’s businesses!  This flyer is in a jpeg format so you can also post it on your social media.  We need all of the help that we can get in spreading the word about this free opportunity.

The event is on Saturday, April 30 from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm.

Climbers should plan on arriving at least 15-minutes prior to the start of their session to get checked in and placed in a harness.  All individuals over 18 years of age should bring a photo ID with them as well.

COVID PROTOCOLS:  Keep in mind, this could change as we make every effort to comply with local protocols.  We are recommending that everyone wear a mask.  The mask can be removed when climbing.  If you are not climbing, please maintain social distancing.  Please use hand sanitizer or wash your hands before and after climbing on the wall.  Please bring your own masks and hand sanitizer!

FOOD & DRINK:  Remember, the only food and / or drink allowed in the climbing area is water.  We want to avoid any allergic reactions to food as well as trying to avoid spilling anything on the mats / crash pads.

If you have ANY questions about this event, please contact Sophie Spanbauer at

If you cannot make this event, please let us know in advance if possible.  We are finalizing the details to be in Pullman, Washington on Sunday, September 25 for a free climbing event at Washington State University.  We are also planning a free ice-skating opportunity for people with special needs to be held in Lewiston, possibly in December or January.  Contact Courageous Kids Climbing for more information about these events.
