Hangdog Days Presentation & Book Signing
Join us as we welcome climbing author Jeff Smoot to share stories and images from his new memoir "Hangdog Days: Conflict, Change, and the Race for 5.14" which chronicles the era of the late 70s and 80s when rock climbing exploded in popularity, attracting a new generation of talented climbers eager to reach new heights via harder routes and faster ascents. This contentious, often humorous period gave rise to sport climbing, climbing gyms, and competitive climbing indelibly changing the culture of the sport, transforming it into what we know today.
April 26th from 7-8:30pm. Free for members, guests welcome with a day pass.

Annual Events You Don't Want to Miss
Climbing Up For Air (CUFA)
Year-round, whether you live in Ogden or SLC, there's no doubt you've biked, hiked, skied, or otherwise made your way above the inversion, looked back down into the valley at the thick cloud of smog below, and wanted to barf. Well, instead of complaining about it (or maybe, in addition to complaining about it), we can work together toward a solution.
How can we do that, you ask? By raising funds for Breathe Utah, a local non-profit fighting for clean air solutions, via our annual fundraiser Climbing Up For Air (CUFA) on February 10th in Ogden and SLC!
Ping Pong for Paws
Come pregame at The Front on the fourth of July! We'll throwing our first ever ping pong tournament! Entry and drink ticket proceeds will be donated to CAWS, a local non-profit and Utah's oldest animal rescue.
Global Climbing Day - Free Climbing For Everyone
Join us to celebrate the walls that unite us, not divide us.
In 2018, Global Climbing Day was August 18, 2018. It was a day full of FREE CLIMBING, live music from Joshy Soul and The Cool, a poster signing with Margo Hayes, food, drinks, and fun! The North Face also donated $1 to the Khumbu Climbing Center for every climber who comes to the gym that day!
