Global Climbing Day 2023
The North Face has teamed up with ASCEND and gyms all over the world to provide inclusive climbing opportunities, lower barriers to entry, and to celebrate Global Climbing Day on Saturday, August 19. We invite ASCEND First Time Visitors to climb for FREE and all returning visitors for a reduced rate of $10 (rental shoes are included)!
PASSES CANNOT BE OBTAINED ONLINE AND MUST BE PROCURED AT FRONT DESK ON AUG. 19.
ASCEND is excited to participate in Global Climbing Day and invite our neighbors from around the city to experience climbing and the unique community that the gym offers. Our mission statement speaks to serving not only the climbing ecosystem, but aspects of the world around us that effect people everyday. "Our business will not just be run to make a profit, but to also be a benefit to its employees, members, the immediate neighborhood, and the region. We will seek to create a sustainable business model, focused on longevity and capable of growing morally and responsibly. We see ourselves as part of a larger climbing ecosystem within the communities of Pittsburgh, Western Pennsylvania, and America. We take our roles as climbing ambassadors very seriously, and we support causes that affect our sport such as land access, environmental stewardship, local legislation, and human-rights."
