About this studio

ASCEND Pittsburgh is a bouldering-centric, indoor rock climbing gym with over 10,000 square feet of Walltopia-built climbing walls surrounded by Flashed flooring, all housed within a 27,000 square foot, second floor space in Pittsburgh’s Southside. 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.

How to prepare

Athletic clothing is advised, but you’ll see climbers in jeans too. Climbing shoes are required, but if you don’t have your own pair, they are available to rent. Fitness and Yoga classes are group classes taught by an instructor. Show up at least 10 minutes early to get registered/oriented to the facility. Open Climbing is not a class, rather it is a time for you to explore our vast climbing terrain on your accord. There is no need show up exactly on time, so please just choose a time range that is close and we'll see you when you arrive!

How to get there

By Car Park in either of our two off-street lots or snag a street-spot (2-hour restrictions apply 12p-12a). Sign the register at ASCEND if you park at Rite Aid. By Bus Bus lines 48, 51, 54, 75, 81, 83 all pass within a handful of blocks of ASCEND, so regardless of where you are bussing from, you are covered! By Bike Our secure outdoor and indoor parking ensures your bike will be safe. Travel by street, or use the riverfront trail to get here from as far as DC (no joke!)

Open Climbing
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Open Climbing
Aweomse place - great staff and facility
Align (Yoga)
Teacher is super nice but I thought it was a yoga class and it really wasnt, so kinda disappointed.
Cross Training
Class was not as well thought out as other similar offerings in the area. We were given a small 8x12 space that kept shrinking as class went on due to more and more people showing up. There is not enough equipment either so consider bringing your own weights/kettlebells.
Cross Training
Kind of a mess. The workout was not good for such a large group of people. Everyone kind of did their own thing at their own pace, so as a result there were not enough weights, we kept getting in each other's way, and it was hard to keep track of what round I was on. very nice instructor, but I would suggest having the class structured with time-based stations to avoid the traffic and disorganization.
Flow (Yoga)
Levi is the best! You leave feeling relaxed and motivated for your day!
Acro Yoga
The class was AWESOME! This was the first time Ive tried acro yoga and not only were the instructors awesome, but everyone in the class was super helpful and supportive. I cant wait to go back.
Therapeutic Acro Yoga
partner class involving lifting and massage, not exactly what I expected but enjoyed the lesson.
Flow (Yoga)
non-judgy atmosphere that allows you to grow in your practice
