Membership Sliding Scale

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?

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.


Then fill out our 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.

Membership Tiers
We ask that you assess your situation and be mindful of others who require a bit more help with accessing our facilities while deciding if this program is right for you.
Tier A | $29 
Tier B | $49
Tier C | $69

Fine Print

Every month, each facility will offer up to 15 new sliding scale memberships. Sliding scale memberships make up a percentage of the whole membership base at each location, so the more members that join BKB, the more sliding scale memberships we are able to offer. Once that month’s memberships have been allocated, new requests will be added to a waitlist until more sliding scale memberships are released. While the selected sliding scale price will be locked-in for 12 months, these members will not be required to fulfill the full 12-month commitment.
