At this Asheville location we offer many different opportunities for adaptive mountain biking and rock climbing adventures:

ADAPTIVE ROCK CLIMBING

Indoor Rock Climbing: Thanks to a new partnership with the Riveter we will be launching a monthly adaptive indoor rock climbing program! These rock climbing clinics for youth and adults with a wide range of physical disabilities and are open to all levels of climber from those who have never climbed before to experienced climbers looking for regular opportunities to climb with others.

When: We are hopeful to launch this program in the summer of 2021. However, depending on how COVID-19 develops, this timeframe may be delayed. We are working closely with the Riveter and following all state and CDC recommendations. We will keep everyone updated on how programming and dates will be impacted.

Climbing Partners

Adaptive Athletes: Although we are unable to run programs in large group settings right now we still want to encourage people to get out and climb. With this new initiative, we are looking to connect adaptive climbers and volunteers to help everyone get back in the climbing gym. Are you an independent adaptive climber who can follow your local gym’s protocol and want to get climbing again? Would you like to push yourself to the next level and possibly look to compete in future competitions or train for your next big adventure? Register below to get connected with someone in your area.
Volunteers: Are you looking for a climbing partner as well or do you have room for a third person in your group? We would love to work with you! Just let us know your availability and we can connect you with other climbers. Also, do you coach or would you be interested in coaching virtually? Let us know by registering below.
