In January 2017, CityROCK launched its Climbing Development Fund with the goal to grow youth climbing and improve local outdoor climbing crags.
30% off the income received from our kids programs and coaching at CityROCK Johannesburg is allocated to this fund together with our front desk tip jar.

A committee was formed with two CityROCK staff and two Redpoint members to manage the fund and allocate where the funds would be spent.

To date the fund has sponsored the following:

  • 3 sponsored climbers annual Redpoint club fees
  • 2 sponsored youth climbers to train in CityROCKs weekly coaching program for 2017
  • 3 Redpoint CityROCK climbers to travel and compete at the National Bouldering Championship in Cape Town
  • Chosspile crag clean up and upliftment
