TABVAR was founded in 1994, for the purpose of raising and distributing funds to help with the material costs incurred in the installation of fixed hardware on and maintenance of climbs in the Bow Valley and adjacent areas.

Jon Jones was the president until his retirement in 2020. His work both in fundraising and in route development were key in the Bow Valley becoming such a vibrant and well established climbing destination.
