From The North Face:

Since 1966, we have viewed walls not as obstacles, but as opportunities.

From the big walls of Yosemite to the high peaks of the Himalayas, we were searching for a personal kind of freedom.

In this pursuit, we found a community – strengthened by different stories, experiences and perspectives.

This community has shown us that the only way forward is together.

We believe in a world that is united by difference, bound by empathy and strengthened by understanding.

Walls Are Meant For Climbing.

Global Climbing Day FAQ

There is no minimum age requirement for the Free Climbing portion of Global Climbing Day. All climbers (kids and adults alike) will be climbing on ropes, so the only minimum requirement that applies is that children need to be large enough to appropriately fit in a rental harness. We typically recommend ages 5 and up.

For Intro Lessons, you must be 16 years or older to take a class.

We cannot take reservations for the Free Climbing portion of Global Climbing Day. Participants will be served on a first come, first serve basis, so there may be a wait.

Intro Classes can be booked online in advance, and it is highly recommended as space is limited. We cannot guarantee space if you arrive day-of without a reservation.

Yes! 100% free. Come hang out with us! (Pun intended.)
