Woohoo! We've been nominated for the Pittsburgh City Paper's Best of 2018 for Best Place for a Kid's Birthday Party. We'd argue that it's just as much fun if you're an adult!

@mccormick_ta and @thepaulguarino had a blast yesterday climbing around at @movementboulder with some new and old friends. The lead climbing was SUPER FUN, the space and vibe is open and welcoming, and climbing celebrities are as common as bridges in the #steelcity - hats off former #pittsburgh residents and climbing partners @becca_beatbox @topropetim for being a part of such an iconic climbing and fitness team! #teamfun

The @climbingwallassociation just wrapped up an incredible conference with a Women in Climbing panel discussion that engaged and challenged everyone at the summit. So many takeaways, but most important is that we all need to seek alternative perspectives. Don’t assume and don’t place preconceived perceptions on anyone before hearing their story. Think about inclusion and all of the nuances that come with it. It’s not easy, but it is very much worth it. Just try more! This is how we’ll grow and this is how we’ll get better. Thank you to @_linacolina_ @becca_beatbox @shelmatic @heyflashfoxy @alpenglowexpeditions @halcyhoo @skopound and all of the other amazing speakers and event organizers. @ascendpgh will most definitely be back next year and cannot wait to reconnect with everyone we met this week. So much to look forward to and so much room for growth. While we have always strived to be knowledgeable and welcoming, this experience was truly enlightening for our team and therefore our amazing community. Also, we hung out with Lynn Hill, one of the OG female climbing pioneers, and that’s pretty dope! She apparently has a great @airbnb in Boulder, CO, so hit her up if you need a place to stay!

We are kicking off our 2018 Film Series with @EndlessAbilities on June 16th in partnership with CLASS and @EastEndBrewing.  Get your tickets today at ascendpgh.com/community. Learn more about CLASS at classcommunity.org. . . . In the spring of 2012, four best friends drove across the country in search of adaptive sports for individuals with physical disabilities, and lived to tell the story in a feature documentary film. . . . From rehabilitation patients to Paralympic athletes, our cameras captured the reality of broken boundaries and common goals among all who are active. We went rock climbing with the blind, played soccer with quadriplegics, and swam with those with muscular dystrophy, to name a few. Through our journey, we learned that sports really are the great equalizer, unifying people of all abilities on a level playing field. . . . #ascendpgh #climbpgh #pgh #endlessabilities #accessibleoutdoors #accessibleadventure
