Pricing Information

  • Discount = ASCEND is happy to offer a discount on Day Passes and Memberships to the following groups:

    • Teachers, Health Care Workers, First Responders (EMT, fire, military, law enforcement, etc.), SWPACC + Access Fund Members, AAC Members, ECP Members, Bike PGH Member, AmeriCorps Worker, Outdoor Industry Professional (National Ski Patrol, AMRG, AMGA, PCGI, etc)

    • Discount will be applied once proof of affiliation has been shown to a staff member in-store or via email and cannot be retroactively applied to dues already billed to your account. Periodic proof of eligibility for a discounted membership and other discounts will be required. Failure to provide proof of discount eligibility will result in non-discount dues and rates being assessed. This is not considered an increase in dues and does not require 60 days written notice, although reasonable notice will be given.

  • Seeking financial assistance? Tap into the ASCEND Equity + Outreach Fund.

  • We offer organization/corporate memberships and team-building events! Learn more.

  • Climbing Gym + Local Outdoor Industry Employees: Do you work at another climbing gym or within the local outdoor industry? Get a Monthly Renewing Membership for $45 per month. Or, get a Day Pass for contributing $10 to ASCEND's Equity + Outreach Fund. All we ask is that you demonstrate reasonable proof and give us a high-five!

  • Gift cards make great gifts!

  • How do monthly renewing memberships work? Dues are automatically deducted from your checking account or billed to your credit card each month. Dues, no more than one month at a time and no more than one month in advance, can be prepaid with cash, credit, or gift card, but at the non-renewing membership rate. For an monthly renewing membership to be cancelled or placed on hold, you must submit this form at least 1 day prior (24 hours or more) to the next billing date (we bill on the 1st of each month).

  • May I place my membership on hold? Absolutely - ASCEND allows Monthly Renewing Members to place their memberships on hold at no cost for up to six month. Holds must start on the first day of the month and restarts occur on the last day of a month, or when you visit to manually restart. To place your membership on hold, you must submit this form at least 1 day prior (24 hours or more) to the freeze date to ensure that you will not be billed for the next month. You must also indicate a thaw date, which is the date on which you want billing to automatically restart. Upon restarting a held membership, the membership will continue through at least the end of the next month following that date. It then continues indefinitely until cancelled or changed.

  • Monthly Mega Member Perks: In addition to the standard membership benefits, ASCEND members may also take advantage of some really incredible perks. We will announce the perk each month on social media and post information at our front desks. You can become a member at anytime during the month to take advantage of the perk! Perks could include, but are definitely not limited to: retail discounts, guest passes (not just new visitors), FREE stuff (like chalk, food, or swag), member referral incentives, custom merchandise opportunities, resole discount.
