Progress Report

Friends of Ascend! As you can see in the pictures below, general construction is progressing well and is more than 50% complete. Come the new year, the space will be ready for Walltopia and Flashed to begin installing our one-of-a-kind, custom-designed climbing walls surrounded by super-safe, super-stylish continuous padding. We have waited over five years to see these walls go up and literally could not be more excited for this time to come!

Since pictures speak louder than words, we'll keep this brief. Rest easy that we're still on track to open our doors in February 2017. Due to the complexities of permitting, we are unable to project an exact date at this time, but we will do our best to make you all aware of our precise opening date with as much advance notice as possible.

Additionally, we're still accepting applications for the position of Head Routesetter. In case you missed it, please check out the original postingĀ here.

Stay tuned for more updates and pictures showcasing the walls going up with all the finishing touches that will make Ascend the best place to climb in Pittsburgh!
