From one of the participating gyms - Global Climbing Day - Facebook Event:

Join us for Global Climbing Day on August 24th! We’ve teamed up with The North Face and climbing gyms across the globe to celebrate inclusivity and community through climbing.

There will also be $500 worth of prizes from The North Face to giveaway, and Walls Are Meant for Climbing t-shirts up for grabs with funds going to our partner organisations.

For every climber that takes part in a Global Climbing Day event at a participating gym in Australia and New Zealand, The North Face will donate $1 to a fund that will go towards Cliff

  • I’ve been hanging on for this…

  • Stuff like this really gets me high

  • lots of peeps will cave in at this deal

  • it'll be thirsty, please also have free solo to drink

  • take the lead boys, bring your partners with you so as not to create any friction

  • these puns are driving me up the face of the wall..

  • Its not very global if it's only brisbane…

  • This seems to be quite trendy right now. Anything that caused indoor climbing and/or bouldering to spike in the last few months (at least in Syd)?

      • Nah it precedes those films, the latest resurgence in interest around rock climbing started around the beginning of the decade and has been steadily building. The amount of climbing and bouldering gyms has exploded in the last 5 years. I don’t think any one doco did it but Valley Uprising is a great one that come out in 2014 that follows the beginnings of modern rock climbing in Yellowstone National Park and the rebellious culture around it.

      • Dawn Wall is currently on Netflix too.

        Both films from a 'story' perspective are decent.

        The grading of the climbs in Dawn Wall are ridiculous, but the guys climb with protection - and take as many attempts as necessary to complete the pitches.

        Alex Honnold in Free Solo though - that is a whole new level of mental with death the consequence. I can't imagine watching that climb in person - it would be sickening.

    • Friend asked me to come along maybe 4 months ago and I loved it

      • What do you love about it..?

        • I love the combination of technique, physical ability and problem solving to complete a climb. When I started, I had such little upper body strength and was eager to overcome that to improve. I am still not very good about 4 or so months in but the feeling of improving is addicting.

    • Those Ninja reality shows….. and ‘It’s a Kockout’

    • No idea, my 6yo has been begging me so I took him last week. He climbed 5 stories high and felt like a god so we'll definitely be back.

  • Imaging Ozbargainers climbing all over the wall, that would be funny

  • Does anyone know any sites where you can get reasonable deals on their clothing?

  • FYI..

    As a climber in VIC I would offer the following advice with respect to gyms (well the ones I have been to)
    <>>>>
    Urban Climb Collingwood - Lots of space, very low climb density (lots of space between climbs), more expensive then most gyms, beginner friendly
    Urban Newstead - Not open yet
    Blochaus - Haven't been yet
    Cliffhangers - Mostly rope climbing with small boulder area, good selection of climbs, beginner friendly
    North Walls Indoor - Only rope climbing, good selection of climbs, beginner friendly
    Northside Boulders - Only bouldering, good range in climbs, medium climb density, beginner friendly

    Sorry I cant format this post better, OZ restrictions :(

  • Clearly, the kids in the NT dont need to climb anything so they can piss off

  • Just curious though what is everyone doing tonight

  • Always want to try. This is a good opportunity, hopefully it's not too crowded.

  • Sad that my closest one isn't free 😢

  • In Perth it's one for one plus gear hire, not really free.

  • anyone been to alexandria one before, last year? will it be packed?

    I went to Rydalmere one last year about 3pm, it was a bit busy to line up to sign a waiver and had to watch a short video but then there was no wait to climb the actual sections.

  • Yes. Went to 9 degrees Enoggera and scored a free north face walls are meant for climbing tshirt.
