ASCEND Youngstown was originally built by local owner operators in March of 2019 and it was called Transcend Bouldering Lounge. Later that year, through a mutually beneficial sale, ASCEND acquired this small-sized, but stellar bouldering facility, which also includes a yoga room, fitness area, climbing training zone, and permanent slackline!

In addition to climbing, fitness, yoga, and slacklining, visitors may benefit from our retail store, concessions, gender neutral changing and restrooms, and numerous spaces to relax, snack, study, meet, and work. This facility does not yet have showers, but that, and more, are in future expansion plans!



ASCEND Youngstown's climbing walls were constructed by local owner operators who had professional wall building experience. The continuous climbing flooring was installed by Habit Flooring. OnSite then installed two adjustable training boards.

Youth Programs

ASCEND Youngstown's youth programs are designed to grow strong minds and bodies in Youngstown's youth. No matter a child's age or level of experience, we've got a program for you.



The ASCEND community offers a wide range of events and clubs to help you achieve your goals, on and off the walls. Sure, climbing is the best thing ever, but you never know who or what else you might fall in love with. So step out of your comfort zone and join in on the fun!



ASCEND Youngstown features a permanent slackline that guests can use whenever they like. And every once in a while, we will transform the entire gym into a slackline playground, featuring low-lines, mid-lines, long-lines, trick-lines, rodeo-lines, and any other type of line you can think of!
