The North Face has partnered with a number of climbing gyms around the world to offer free indoor climbing.
Global Climbing Day is part of the WALLS ARE MEANT FOR CLIMBING campaign which aims to counter the divisions we’re witnessing globally by inviting people to find trust in community.
On Aug. 18 there will be free climbing opportunities in cities in U.S., China, Canada, Europe, Nepal, Australia, Peru, Guatemala and more.
“Globally, we will donate $1 for every person who climbs at one of the more than 150 participating gyms on Aug. 18th up to $100,000. Funds will go to Khumbu Climbing Center.”
In the U.S., The North Face is “continuing our partnership with The Trust for Public Land to support the installation of public climbing walls in more communities, with a focus on under-served areas and making the sport more accessible to all.”
Join us to celebrate the walls that unite us, not divide us on 08.18.2018 for Global Climbing Day. Over 150 gyms globally will be participating in the movement to promote inclusivity within the community by offering free climbing, gear giveaways & more. We’re donating $1 to the @khumbuclimbingcenter for every climber who joins us for Global Climbing Day at a participating gym up to $100,000. See link in bio for more information, to find your closest participating gym, & to register #climbwalls
In June, The North Face celebrated the completion of the first of these wall in the Montbello Open Space Park, near Denver. The park is a soon to be completed, 4.5-acre green space serving 40,000+ low-to moderate-income youth and families from the area. More public climbing boulders will be coming soon.
