Whether you're brand new to climbing or looking to step up to the next level, you'll be matched with experienced and supportive women. After a full night of practice, head on over to The Local for a post-climbing presentation and discussion on the topic of women powering women. Join a conversation on how as women, we can continue to grow and support each other and work to break down systemic dynamics that have been fostered between women.

Facility Improvements

The Cliffs is working to improve the energy efficiency of our ventilation system as well as its filtration of chalk particles. During this time we will do what we can to make the climate as comfortable as possible, but you should plan for the potential of it being warm in the gym. Once completed you should expect constant sending temps and clean crisp air for years to come. Thank you for your patience.
