Remember when you were young and invincible? Climbing is the perfect sport for kids, and Mission Cliffs offers a variety of activities for kids to try rock climbing in a safe environment. Fun birthday parties, after school and summer camps and teen programs are just a few of the fun rock climbing programs we offer for kids.

Kids' Parties

Plan your next rock climbing birthday party, Bar Mitzvah, club meeting or special event with us in an outrageous environment! Our staff provides basic instruction and belaying for all party participants. The ratio of staff members to children is one to six or better. After climbing, celebrate in our private party room. Bring your own food and drinks or call for take-out. This is a great way to facilitate an active and fun party! 

You'll have two hours of rock climbing and use of a party area. How you use that time is up to you! Please reserve your event at least two weeks in advance, and we'll take a deposit to hold your spot.

Price: $125 for 5 kids (minimum) $25 each additional child.

Teen Climbing Program

Are you looking for something positive for your teenager to do in the afternoons? Are you a teenager looking to take your climbing to the next level and maybe even compete? Coach Malcolm McMahon has been working with the Mission Cliffs Teen Team for over a year now and is excited in the increased attendence and enthusiasm amongst the team. 

Malcolm grew up in New Jersey and moved to San Francisco almost two years ago. He's worked in rock gyms and taught climbing essentials for over 10 years. At the New Jersey Rock Gym he set for competitions, taught a variety of classes, and assisted coaching a nationally-recognized climbing team, the NJ Rockers. He says he loves climbing in all its forms (though he still has yet to fully embrace ice), and he's very happy to have made great friends and memories along the way.

Join the team and catch the bug!

Being a part of the Teen Team includes free rental gear, 2 hours of coaching per week, and full access to Mission Cliffs at any time. 

Price: $86 per month with $50 initiation fee

Time: Thursdays 4pm-6pm

Private Coaching

Our instructors are available for private or small group lessons. We would be happy to tailor a climbing program to your needs. Just sign up at the front desk. Also, be sure to check our calendar for monthly clinics!


Bring your scout troop, church group or graduating class for some all-night fun! The party starts at 9pm and lasts until 6am or later. Rock climbing, games, obstacle courses and competitions are just some of the things that will keep your crowd occupied through the night! Call the manager to reserve a night for your group.
