Spire Climbing Center, in conjunction with Touch the Sky, is excited to kick off the spring climbing season by hosting the annual Spring Fling rope-climbing competition. You've been training hard all winter (right?) so come show us what you're made of. Bring a potluck dish and your favorite spandex for this fun, relaxed adult comp.

Spire Spring Fling is one of the largest fundraisers of the year for Bozeman-based non-profit Touch the Sky. Touch the Sky's mission is to encourage youth to get outdoors through rock climbing, by providing climbing programs for kids that educate, inspire, and empower. Touch The Sky provides service to organizations working with low income and at-risk youth, and also provides reduced-fee assistance and scholarships. Since 1996, Touch The Sky has provided climbing opportunities to nearly 1,000 kids from all walks of life! Touch The Sky also hosts the BOZEMAN CLIMBING TEAM.
