Diversity Equity and Inclusion Statement

The Bower Climbing Coalition strives to bring together climbers of all race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, age, socioeconomic status, and outdoor experience and ability in inclusive community events and gatherings. 

The BCC recognizes the implicit cultural and social-structural gap of access to outdoor recreation in our community and on a greater national scale. Some demographics and socioeconomic groups are underrepresented in outdoor recreation and education, specifically in regard to climbing. 

In an effort to close this gap, the Bower Climbing Coalition will strive to do the following:

  • We will seek out and welcome people from all communities to our membership, and encourage them to participate in the affairs/events of our organization as volunteers, participants, and members of the BCC.
  • We will encourage our members to be inclusive in the climbing community and to serve as stewards of the outdoors to facilitate and grow a diversifying demographic of climbers and outdoor adventurers. 
  • We will reflect on the ways in which our community has excluded people from marginalized backgrounds, and strive to reduce the barriers faced by these individuals through direct outreach and other means.
  • We will establish an expectation of mutual respect in the interactions that happen across our organization.
  • We will look for opportunities to promote diversity and inclusion in our relationships with other organizations and within our leadership.
  • We will continue to be a community minded organization dedicated to maintaining, expanding and preserving Inland Northwest climbing for all people. 
  • We will value the perspectives and contributions of all people to our organization.

Rock The Earth: Earth Day Crag Cleanup 2019

The loss of Jess Roskelley has rocked Spokane’s climbing community. Jess was a founder of the BCC as well as a friend and climbing partner to many us, and the Roskelley family is woven into the very fabric of our community. After consulting with Allison, the BCC has decided to continue with Sunday’s crag cleanup and party. We feel that coming together as a climbing community to celebrate Earth Day is what Jess would have wanted and can help us to cope with this great loss.
The family is still planning Jess’s memorial and will announce the details soon. We are gathering pictures of Jess to give to Allison; please email any pictures you’d like to share to
We are dropping the admission charge to the Fred Beckey movie and party: if you have bought a ticket we will refund your money. We’ll see you Sunday! Come out to and help us clean the crags we love, and join for the afterparty and movie at the Washington Cracker Building.
