What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in climbing, fitness, yoga, or just hanging out with a cool group of people! All skill levels are welcome, so don't be shy. We look forward to meeting others that we can climb with, whether indoors or outdoors. We also love yoga, cycling, running, slacklining, playing games, and just having fun getting to know new people in an inclusive environment.

ASCEND Run Club (Pittsburgh)

Ascend Pittsburgh

ASCEND Run Club formed in April 2017. We're a casual group of climbers who are also born to run! We meet every Monday evening near ASCEND Pittsburgh's front desk at 5:45p to mingle and warm up, and take off promptly at 6p! If you're late, you better be fast ;) Typically, everyone starts together and links with similar paces for a 4 mile or 8 mile run around the South Side, ending back at ASCEND. Any and all are welcome and do not need to be a member of ASCEND to participate. Spread the word!

If you're interested in becoming an ASCEND Run Club Ambassador, or starting a club out of ASCEND Youngstown? Visit ascendclimbing.com/volunteers to help build the group's presence!

In order to participate in Run Club you must complete the ASCEND Clubs Waiver (https://waiver.smartwaiver.com/w/59bbf9b6296d3/web/) - different than the ASCEND Facility Waiver. Get all the details and links at ascendclimbing.com/runclub.

BIPOC Climbing Affinity Session

ASCEND Pittsburgh

This free climbing session is intended for those in our community who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color). All ages, abilities, members and guests are welcome to come!

Join ASCEND as we celebrate our diverse communities with the BIPOC Affinity Sessions — a climbing session, on the first Saturday of each month, dedicated to individuals who haven't always had equal access to or treatment within the sport. It's a space dedicated to intentional inclusivity, not exclusivity, and we invite you to participate and be a part of these efforts.

Please register for the BIPOC Affinity Session here: https://app.rockgympro.com/b/widget/?a=offering&offering_guid=dc72f5fac0474a40b7f5445e2aa0fca2&random=60db829dd6668&iframeid=&mode=p
