Some People Build Walls,
Other People Climb Them.

Since 1966, we've seen walls not as obstacles but as opportunities. They are a chance to explore what we believe to be possible. They are a vertical proving ground for grit, perseverance, and determination.

They taught us to trust, to work together, to create safety in partnership. They are mirrors that reflect the best versions of ourselves. Walls do not divide us, walls bring us together.

Walls are meant for climbing.

Climbing:
The Great Equalizer

Monserrat Matehuala, Maureen Beck, Margo Hayes and Ken Yager share how climbing impacts their lives and creates community.

Walls can be a place where people unite and build trust. On August 18 we offered free indoor climbing sessions to inspsire everyone to celebrate Global Climbing Day. More than 200 gyms participated around the world and for every climber who roped up, we gave $1 to the Khumbu Climbing Center.

Montbello open space park of Denver, Colorado

Our first free climbing boulder was designed by kids in Montbello during a workshop with the local non-profit Environmental Learning for Kids (ELK). We'll continue to establish more climbing walls in underserved communities as part of our $1 million donation to The Trust For Public Land.
