Kids Climbing Games

RIsE up climbing

Guided climbing sessions at MRJ will be separated by age and feature a quick introduction to climbing followed by a variety of games to challenge climbers’ creativity and tenacity. We will have prizes for each group and be available to answer your questions about indoor and outdoor climbing.

Stephen Baker

Stephen was coaxed into climbing by a buddy in 2009 and has never fully recovered. After moving back to Virginia, Stephen started working at Rise Up in 2017, which eventually led to an opportunity to buy the gym. He now sets routes while managing gym finances.

Chris Voirol

Shortly after moving to Lynchburg, a series of fortunate events led Chris to their first climbing session in 2019. Chris began coaching in 2020, and the supportive and encouraging climbing community here has made Lynchburg their home. Chris now directs youth programs, camps, clubs, teams, and events at the gym.
