Welcome to ASCEND Climbing!

ASCEND Climbing is the proud operator of THREE facilities: ASCEND South Side (Pittsburgh), ASCEND Point Breeze (Pittsburgh) and ASCEND Youngstown!

ASCEND South Side is a bouldering-centric climbing facility featuring expansive climbing walls all housed within an open and airy space with panoramic views of the city from Pittsburgh's historic South Side neighborhood. Beyond bouldering, ASCEND offers roped climbing on a 24-foot-tall wall featuring 20 climbing stations with a mix of auto-belays and top-ropes. Cross-training is also a big part of ASCEND, so be sure to explore climbing-specific training and fitness equipment or drop in on one of our yoga or fitness classes. In addition to climbing, fitness, and yoga, visitors can also enjoy use of our slackline, concessions, locker rooms with showers, and numerous spaces to relax, study, or work. To get a better understanding of the space, please take a 360 tour or visit our YouTube channel.

ASCEND Point Breeze (Pittsburgh) is Pittsburgh's premier rope climbing facility (still with plenty of bouldering!) featuring OnSite climbing walls and flooring. This newly opened location is in the heart of Rockwell Park in Pittsburgh's North Point Breeze location. Boasting a similar array of amenities as the South Side location, ASCEND Point Breeze is here to meet all of your climbing, fitness, and yoga needs!

ASCEND Youngstown is a bouldering-only location with two adjustable training walls, a large selection of fitness equipment, and a welcoming yoga studio. Come and enjoy the best for health and wellness in the Youngstown area!
