New Bouldering Walls Coming to RCF (Video)
Update May 20, 2019
Bouldergeddon has begun
Our crews have been busy the past week demolishing most of our bouldering terrain. The cutting and grinding is finished and we’re finally ready for our wall builder Rockwerx to take over the project and begin installing our new boulders. See the designs by scrolling to the bottom of this post.
Crews from Rockwerx arrive on Wednesday, May 22 with plans to begin installation of the new caves and Kilterboard, hopefully to open first by the end of June. Then they’ll move on to the main room and begin installing a huge new top-out bouldering feature which we expect will open sometime in July.
Thanks to all of our great members who climbed despite the loud noises during demolition. It will all be worth it!
Bouldering Is Open
We still have bouldering available in the "crows nest” and top out boulder areas. Our routesetting crew will be resetting the boulders more frequently to keep the problems fresh.
Throughout construction, bouldering day passes are just $5.

Boulder Project Update
The RCF Boulder Project begins May 8, 2019
You have to break a few eggs to make an omelette and for us to build our exciting new bouldering terrain, we're first going to have to make a little mess. We promise it will be worth it! Our setters will maintain as much open bouldering through the project as possible in the crows nest area and topout boulder. Roped climbing will be minimally impacted.
