HB 257 Information

USA Climbing recognizes that the recent passing of HB 257 affects trans and non-binary members. USA Climbing does not support this legislation and remains committed to fostering an environment where all climbers feel welcome and can strive for success. The USA Climbing Training Center is a privately owned space that is not required to comply with HB 257. Moreover, the facility will have gender-neutral bathroom options for participants. For those who are traveling to Utah and would like more information about HB 257, check out the HB 257 FAQs provided to us by the ACLU of Utah and Equality Utah.
