BelayALL workshop series

BelayALL, in partnership with The Hive Climbing & Fitness, Evolv and the Vancouver Tool Library, proudly presents three workshops designed to explore different facets of the sport of climbing.

The workshops are exclusively for individuals who must navigate systems of gender-based oppression in climbing spaces as well as most all other spaces within society. Priority will be given to registrants who hold Black, Indigenous and/or racialized identities as well as queer and/or trans identities.


workshop details


TRAINING. We’ll cover approaches to training specifically for climbing, increasing strength and confidence and how to think about personal training regimens. Climbing experience recommended.

MOBILITY. An often overlooked part of being a climber, mobility is our range of motion (different from flexibility) and can be key in helping prevent injuries. This digital clinic will take attendees through a full-body mobility routine with variations to create an “all-bodies welcome” environment. No previous climbing experience required for this clinic.

INTRO TO ROUTE SETTING. This clinic will share knowledge and expertise from one of The Hive’s route setters with attendees, including setting safety practices and basics of encouraging specific movement. Each attendee will get to try their hand at setting a boulder problem. The aim is to bring more diversity into route setting and get more representation into parts of the climbing industry. Climbing experience is required. Thanks to the Vancouver Tool Library for their support of this workshop!

All workshops will follow current federal and provincial health guidelines and COVID precautions. Attendance will be restricted to small groups but workshop content will be recorded and accessible through belayALL, and the CEC website. 


JAN 25 – FEB 28


Stick together while we climb apart! Now with the added feel-good of giving a little support to our friends at BelayALL, who work hard to foster diversity and inclusivity in climbing while reducing barriers to access.

Top team wins a month membership each; one lucky raffle winner will recieve a pair of Boulder Denim jeans!

CELEBR’EIGHT | postponed


ANOTHER DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED when we’re able to reasonably foresee large gatherings as a good idea again. We sincerely hope you stay well.

Pacific Boulder League

Boulder league details

How does it all work?

– Week 1: Sept 17 – 23
– Week 2: Sept 24 – 30
– Week 3: October 1 – 7
– Week 4: October 8 – 14
– Week 5: October 15 – 21
– Hive Finals @ Vancouver: November 1 6PM

PBL Championships: Early November (exact date TBD)

Teams need to register by September 17 to get the full league time. Your team name needs to be family friendly, as it goes on the public scoreboard. There will be registration by location and teams must register at one location or the other.
$16.50 per person to enter covers the entire League except Pacific Boulder League Championships which will have a small additional team fee.

Scoring and Teams:
20 problems weekly with new problems tagged Tuesday mornings at open. There will be 6 new boulders and 14 of the most recently set problems included in the week’s ‘new’ League problems.
Teams must be co-ed*, & must climb together once a week. Teams will be allowed ONE ‘free pass’ to full team attendance which may be used any week during the league but only one week. Once this free pass is used up, teams will be scored on their collective session total, divided by full number of members in the team. (See Weekly Team Score below)
Team will be given a scorecard for that week’s climb, to be picked up at the front desk with the full team in attendance (with some flexibility for a member being 15-20 min behind, on occasion).

Problems will be numbered with a league number tag. Only those problems will be included in the League scoring. The problems will be cumulatively numbered; week 1 will be 1-20, week 2 will be 21-40, and so on.
Each person can only count a problem once towards their score but multiple team members can count the same problem. Top 5 problems for each person count toward that week’s score which is divided by the total number of team members.

Weekly Team Score:
Problems are given their equivalent points to their hex number (0 hex = .5, rest are # hex = point). Points are awarded for completed problems only. Problems are completed when the climber holds the top with 2 hands (controlled) or tops out the problem. Team members will judge each other as to a valid ascent. Gym staff may spot check (at any time) that teams are judging properly and fairly.
The top 5 hardest boulders completed by each team member, divided by the number of team members in attendance.
Team Ranking will be calculated as the sum of team’s weekly scores. League Standings will be kept updated on a weekly basis at the gym.

Prizes for the Hive Finals will be awarded to top 3 teams at the end of the night (as soon as scores are totalled, which usually takes about 20-30 minutes).

Hive Finals
All Hive Boulder League teams are invited to participate in the Hive Boulder League Finals at Hive Vancouver on November 1! Doors will open at 5:30 and climbing begins at 6pm; teams will have until 9:30pm to get those top 5 problems for each team member signed off on their scorecard. These points count for double!!
Prizes will be awarded at the end of the night as soon as all scores are totalled.

Top 3-5 teams from each location will be invited to attend the Pacific Boulder League Championships at Project Cloverdale on Nov 16.

*co-ed meaning respectfully gender diverse; can be male, female, non-conforming, gender-fluid, or questioning; anyone in our community is welcome! We are certainly not trying to out anyone and apologize for any discomfort for anyone who is still processing their gender identity and is not yet ready to share this information; we are open to suggestions on how best to be inclusive in future and appreciate your feedback, which can be submitted anonymously through a letter to management dropped at the desk, or an email directly to the Events Manager, Kate: kate@hiveclimbing.com Please note, this is a genuine effort to be inclusive — anyone found to be mocking non-binary gender expression will be asked to stop, followed by a request to leave the League if necessary.

Mentor Nights!

Starting January 28 2019, join us as a mentor or a mentee on the last Monday of each month

Ask anyone who’s been climbing for more than 5 years how they started; you’ll soon hear about the friend who got them into it and taught them the ropes (or lack thereof) from the start.

The aim of Mentor nights is to connect less experienced or newer climbers to the wealth of experienced and amazing individuals at the gym, and to encourage a small-gym community feeling, despite the constant growth of our climbing community.

Talk to the front desk at your home gym to get involved today.
