Welcome to Pittsburgh’s premier climbing, yoga, and fitness facility.

ASCEND Pittsburgh is a bouldering-centric, indoor rock climbing gym with over 10,000 sq. feet of Walltopia-built climbing walls surrounded by Flashed flooring, all housed within a 27,000 sq. 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. To get a better understanding of the space, please take a 360 tour or visit our YouTube channel.
