BKB is committed to making climbing more accessible and inclusive for all who are interested in rock climbing. We want everyone, regardless of income, background, experience, or preference to feel welcome and have the opportunity to build that power within to climb smarter and stronger. We are committed to changing for the better and doing our part to provide accessibility within our communities.
What Is A Sliding Scale Membership?
As part of our work to improve access in the climbing community, we have launched sliding scale membership options and are inviting prospective members to choose the membership price that is most accessible for them. By introducing a sliding scale model, anchored in the economic and budget realities of families in our cities, we are working to make our community accessible for all.
How It Works
We are committed to providing 5% of memberships as sliding-scale memberships at each BKB location. In effect, every 10 market-rate memberships support an additional sliding-scale membership and improve access for our communities.
If you live or work near a BKB location and are facing barriers in your life that have impacted your ability to sweat it out in one of our communities, review our three tier options and determine which tier best matches what you’re able to pay.
Next, fill out the form below, indicating the tier that is the best fit for you, and our team will get back to you on availability and membership next steps. Our team will never ask you for a pay stub, this is an entirely self-selecting process in an effort to meet the needs of different financial realities within our community.
