Due to the nature of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and our desire to keep our community healthy and strong, some aspects of our operations will be impacted. We ask that you review and heed all pertinent information before arriving to an ASCEND facility, as there precautions and a mandatory reservation system, with the exception of ASCEND Youngstown, from 10a - 4p, Monday - Friday. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding while we make our way back toward normalcy. Please visit ASCENDCLIMBING.COM/COVID for more information.
Happening at ASCEND
ASCEND Climbing is the proud operator of two facilities, ASCEND Pittsburgh and ASCEND Youngstown!
ASCEND Pittsburgh is a bouldering-centric climbing facility featuring Walltopia climbing walls surrounded by Flashed flooring, all housed within an expansive second floor space with a panoramic view of the city from Pittsburgh's Southside. 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 child watch services, 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 Youngstown, formerly known as Transcend Bouldering Lounge until brought into the ASCEND Climbing family on November 5, 2019 features bouldering with limited fitness equipment. Soon, we'll be adding more equipment, and fitness and yoga classes, as well as adult and youth programming. Keep your eyes peeled for more!
