The mission of the Fairbanks Youth Climbing Program is to introduce and cultivate rock climbing skills, techniques, and movement within the Fairbanks area youth.  The purpose of this mission is to enhance teamwork, communication, and confidence within our climbers.  Our teaching methods nurture this purpose.
