About this studio
ASCEND Pittsburgh is a bouldering-centric, indoor climbing gym on a second floor space in Pittsburgh’s South Side. Beyond bouldering, ASCEND offers roped climbing on a 24-foot-tall wall featuring 20 climbing stations with a mix of auto-belays and top-ropes. Cross-training is also a big part of ASCEND, so be sure to explore climbing-specific training and fitness equipment or drop in on one of our yoga or fitness classes. In addition to climbing, fitness and yoga, visitors can also enjoy use of child watch services, concessions, locker rooms with showers and numerous spaces to relax, study or work. A Day Pass at ASCEND includes unlimited climbing, use of our fitness equipment, an array of complimentary amenities, and your choice of one class - yoga or fitness.

How to prepare
Athletic clothing is advised, but you’ll see climbers in jeans too. Climbing shoes and chalk are complimentary on your first visit, otherwise they are just $4 and $1 each. Fitness and Yoga classes are group classes taught by an instructor. Show up at least 10 minutes early to get oriented to the facility. Yoga mats, blocks, blankets, and straps available and free of charge. Be sure that you complete a waiver (first visit only) and check in at the front desk each time you visit.
