Open Door Membership or Add-on

Paying for gym access is a burden to some, and can prevent people from participating in climbing. We believe climbing is for everyone. We want everyone to be welcome at 5.Life, regardless of their ability to pay. This is why we have created our Open Door Membership. With our Open Door Membership, we simply ask “what can you afford”? Click the Open Door Membership button to apply for access. 

For existing members, we graciously ask you to consider adding a monthly add-on to your recurring membership to support our Open Door Membership. Click the Open Door Add-On to support access to Open Door Memberships.

When Carrie and Alexis Roccos opened the first Vertical Adventures gym in 1994, they were creating a space for themselves and other local climbers to train and get together in between weekend trips to the local crags. They had no idea that what started as a fringe sport would grow to be in the Olympics. 

For both of them knowing that they played a part in the growth of the central Ohio climbing community and climbing in general is humbling and so very exciting at the same time. Their favorite memories are those that include their kids and their climbing community. And while Vertical Adventures has grown, we will always stay true to our values and love that started it all. Thank you to the community for celebrating our 29th birthday with us🥳
