  • TJ Ciotti

Website The Cliffs Climbing + Fitness

Here at The Cliffs, we believe that climbing isn’t just an activity—it’s a shared experience. It’s not just about reaching up, but also reaching out to welcome everyone into this shared space where we leave the city behind and find that one boulder problem or route that just puts a smile on our faces (or the one that tortures us), to challenge ourselves physically + mentally, to support each other, and to forge friendships with people who are like us and people who are not.

Our aim is to offer the best indoor climbing experience, and our climbing walls, routes, and amenities are just the beginning of that experience. Our pulse is comprised of our community and the psych and vibes we bring are what create this space.

The Cliffs strives to be a business that does good: one that brings the benefits of climbing to our local communities, celebrates diversity and constantly strives to be more inclusive, stands for equality and compassion, and models stewardship for the Earth. Read about the actions we will be taking to create a more inclusive climbing community in our Diversity, Equality, Inclusion, Action Initiatives.

We are so excited for you to be a part of our journey, and encourage you to talk with us if you have any ideas regarding how we can continue to do better for climbers, for our community, or for you as a member of our family.
