Welcome to ASCEND Climbing!

ASCEND Climbing is the proud operator of two facilities, ASCEND Pittsburgh and ASCEND Youngstown!

ASCEND Pittsburgh is a bouldering-centric, indoor climbing gym with over 10,000 sq. feet of Walltopia-built climbing walls surrounded by Flashed flooring, all housed within a 27,000 sq. foot, second floor space in 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 is a community hub for new and experienced climbers alike. We provide a gathering place where your climbing friends become your family and your family feels like home. Our goal is to make you feel welcomed so you're able to challenge yourself physically and mentally. Our facility offers 3,000 square feet of bouldering, with a wall height of 16'. With over 80 problems on a regular rotation set by professional routesetters, you will always find something to challenge yourself on. We look forward to being a part of the growing climbing community in Northeast Ohio, Pittsburgh, and beyond.
