Whether you are a brand-new climber or a seasoned rock-climbing pro, head out to your local climbing gym to take advantage of free climbing this Global Climbing Day on Saturday, August 24. Every year, the California-founded outdoor company The North Face partners up with gyms across the world in an effort to lower the barriers to entry and give everyone the opportunity to climb peaks, scale walls, and feel the freedom that comes with conquering obstacles. Join the community of strong, empathetic individuals from all walks of life to turn challenges into opportunities and prove that walls are meant for climbing.
The North Face was established in 1966 with the goal of providing the best outdoor gear for adventurers and athletes while also inspiring exploration and a sense of community.
