Family Night

Saturday, January 28th, 2023

Climbing with your kids just got that much better!

Don’t want to give up climbing now that you’re a parent?
Want to meet other climbers with kids who understand the challenges?

We get it! Being a parent doesn’t mean you need to stop climbing but it does mean you may need to climb differently and that’s what Family Night is all about.

  • Meet and learn from other parents.
  • Make connections and share the responsibility of supervising the kid(s) while you climb.
  • Shift your climb times to when it’s less busy in the gym.
  • Manage expectations because sometimes the kids just won’t cooperate.

4th Saturday of every month | 5pm – 10pm
$12 day passes w/ FREE gear rental

Price includes bouldering access for those with little to no experience.  Top rope climbing is available to those who pass our belay test.

Important Notes:
– Adults must be accompanied by 1 or more children.
– Children must be under 18 years of age.
– Maximum 2 adults and 3 children per group.
– Youth under 14 must be directly supervised by an adult at all times.
– Please see our Climbing With Kids tips for more information.

Women’s Climb Nights

Monthly | 6pm

Schedules vary by location. Please check our Event Calendars for specific dates and times.

Our Women’s Climb Nights in Bellevue and Tacoma focus on creating a dependable, welcoming, and safe atmosphere to connect with other climbers or begin one’s climbing journey. The program offers a new place for women and underserved genders to feel welcome and explore the climbing environment and community.

Staffed by an Edgeworks employee (Community Facilitator) for 1 hour, participants are invited to stay and continue climbing together into the evening. This experience is intended to help participants find new belay buddies and connect with new friends.

Meet and climb with new people and build overall stoke!

The evening typically begins with a warm up on the boulder walls and an ice breaker, followed by top rope climbing.

  • Membership or regular day pass rates apply.
  • If you do not own a harness or shoes, complimentary rentals will be included.
  • We encourage those who wish to attend to be belay certified.
  • This program is currently offered only at our Bellevue + Tacoma locations.

Virtual Blood Drive

Friday, September 30th, 2022

Lead by example. Make an impact.
Give blood for our community.

Edgeworks is partnering with Bloodworks Northwest to host a virtual blood drive across all three locations!

Blood banks have been hit hard this year and they are always looking to find ways to encourage folks to donate. Members and staff are invited to join us in reaching our company goal of 25 donors for September.

Help us reach our goal of 25 donors by following these simple steps:

Step 1:

Schedule an appointment to donate whole blood or apheresis (platelets/double reds/plasma) donation with Bloodworks anytime between September 1st and September 30th.

Same-day appointment is often available, call 1-800-398-7888 for an opening.

Step 2:

On the day of your donation, mention Edgeworks or the donor code “EDGE” when you are getting checked in so that we can keep track of our impact. Thank you for being a life-saver!

Eligibility questions? Please visit bloodworksnw.org/eligibility.

Those who are ineligible to donate or prefer to make an impact in a different way can consider the following: Make a financial gift. Be a Volunteer. Participate in our research program. Even if you can’t give blood for patient care you can give blood for medical research.

Local Donors. Local Patients.

Route Setting Clinics

Saturday, August 27th, 2022

Curious about the professional pathways to becoming a route setter?

These clinics will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of route setting. Participants will learn best practices for safety and tool use, and will have the opportunity to set and forerun boulders in a variety of grades and styles.

We will discuss what a standard day of commercial setting entails, and the ways in which interested people can become more involved. Participants can expect to leave the clinic with a greater understanding of the route setting process and the avenues available to those interested in pursuing a setting career.
