St. Louis, MO | - Upper Limits Rock Gym to participate in Global Climbing Day.  

On August 24th, Upper Limits Rock Gym will be participating in Global Climbing Day - an international collaboration with The North Face that seeks to make climbing accessible to all. Upper Limits, alongside climbing gyms around the world, will be giving away free climbing to all visitors throughout the day, as well as introductory climbing orientations, talks on climbing as a sport and its history, gear demos from local vendors, yoga classes and more.

Global Climbing Day will take place in cities across the U.S., China, Europe, Nepal, Australia, Peru, Guatemala, and more. The North Face will donate $1 for every person who climbs at one of the 150 plus participating gyms, with the funds going to the Trust for Public Land. The Trust for Public Land supports the installation of public climbing walls in more communities with a focus on making the sport more accessible to all. The North Face has incorporated Global Climbing Day into its “Walls Are Meant for Climbing” campaign, which asks people to rethink the way we look at walls, as places where people in the climbing community come together to test themselves, build trust, and strengthen communities.

Upper Limits aims to help kids, adults, and seniors set and meet goals, stay healthy, build relationships, and stay engaged in the community - all through the sport of climbing. Through events like Global Climbing Day, we seek to bring climbing to as many people as possible and welcome an increasingly diverse community through our doors.
