Climbing is for everyone!

Global Climbing Day PArticipants

580 Total Climbers AT THE FRONT!

Thank you

To everyone who joined us for Global Climbing Day at The Front!

We were honored to partner with The North Face in a celebration of the sport we love. Their campaign Walls are Meant for Climbing is one that resonated with so many of us. If you weren’t able to attend this year, please let us explain the meaning behind our celebration:

“SOME PEOPLE BUILD WALLS, OTHER PEOPLE CLIMB THEM

Since 1966, we’ve seen walls not as obstacles but as opportunities. They are a chance to explore what we believe to be possible. They are a vertical proving ground for grit, perseverance, and determination. 

They taught us to trust, to work together, to create safety in partnership. They are mirrors that reflect the best versions of ourselves. Walls do not divide us, walls bring us together. 

Walls are meant for climbing.” – The North Face

We hope Global Climbing Day serves as a reminder – we are all going to run into walls that challenge our perseverance and test our grit, but never forget that we’re all in it together. If we start slipping, reach out, and if we see someone slipping, extend our arm. We’re stronger united! 

If you would like to know more about The North Face’s global movement to build community around the sport of climbing, Visit Global Climbing Day or Walls Are Meant for Climbing.

For every climber who joined Global Climbing Day, The North Face is donating $1 to the KHUMBU CLIMBING CENTER (up to $100,000). If other gyms saw the love we experienced at The Front, we’re sure they’ll meet their goal! 

Here at The Front, we’ve started the Impact Coalition! The details are simple. It’s an opportunity to partner with The Front to improve our local communities. You can now add a $1 donation to your membership and we’ll match that donation to the non-profit you choose up to $40,000 per year! Just $1 a month makes a big difference when we all come together. And, as a partner, we’ll show you some extra love as we team up to be a part of the solution.
