STEEPTEAM is a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to providing climbing mentorship and training to Billings area youth interested in improving their climbing skills through practice and competition.  

Our focus is to develop lifelong climbers.




SteepTeam gives talented young climbers the opportunity to excel in their climbing pursuits.

Climbers build skills with twice weekly practices they can use in local and regional competitions during the school year. The strongest will have the opportunity to participate in divisional and even national competitions.

During the summer, SteepTeam climbers will adventure outdoors, applying skills to the boulders and crags in and around the Billings area.

Local competitions will be required as we feel that they provide great benchmarking and goal setting opportunities in a friendly environment while helping foster the greater Montana climbing community.  We are not requiring team members to participate in USA Climbing sanctioned events.  Climbers wishing to compete at a USAC level will still have continued support by the team and coaches.  


Fall 2019 Schedule TBD



All team members are required to have their own gear, this includes shoes, harness, chalk bag, and appropriate climbing attire. Rental shoes greatly hinder the development of good footwork and are not acceptable.



 Fees cover coaches time and travel for 26 practices, competitions, insurance, administration, and other  necessities needed to run the STEEPTEAM non-profit program.

Monthly Gym Membership: $44/month (not including Initiation Fee for first time members)

 STEEPTEAM practices at STEEPWORLD Climbing & Fitness in Billings Montana. Gym membership is a prerequisite to  being on the team. Gym fees are separate from team fees.

Competition Entry Fee:  TBD

 Climbing competitions have entry fees around $40-$50 per competition.  These prices are set by the host gym and cover the costs for routesetters to set and prepare for the comp as well as t-shirts, awards, gym time, etc.



STEEPTEAM is offering a limited number of scholarships this season. For more information, talk to STEEPTEAM Board Director, Jim Rott, by email at steepteamcoach@gmail.com.
