Community Climbing Days

Helping Everyone Climb

Everyone deserves the opportunity to climb and connect with people. In upholding one of 5.Life’s core values – HEART – we are offering specially designated days to encourage connection and diversity as well as making climbing more accessible. The offering of these discounted days is in response to community members’ requests.


On these specified days, 5.Life offers discounted day passes ($9) to specified groups. Rental gear is included. We will apply commonly accepted definitions of these various groups and how individuals identify. Please respect and honor these defined groups to keep climbing available for everyone.
