Indoor rock climbing has become an incredibly popular mainstream sport and will soon be featured in the Olympic Games. Nearly every state in the nation is now home to at least one rock climbing gym, and all forecasts predict the sport will only continue to grow. We intend to grow with it!
Like all industries, there are some who do it poorly, some who do it well, and some who do it best. Vertical Solutions, the nation’s largest domestic climbing wall manufacturer, does it best. We build indoor climbing walls throughout the country with distinctive materials that set us apart from (and above) the competition, and we have set the industry standard for design and aesthetics. Our walls are fabricated at our headquarters in Salt Lake City by an expert team of carpenters and welders and shipped to job sites across the country for assembly by our traveling field crew. VS also produces a full fleet of climbing holds and pads, and offers in-depth business development consulting, making us the only true full-service gym builder in the U.S.. The rapid expansion of our company and industry ensures ample opportunity for career development and upward mobility.
The Front Climbing Club was Utah’s first indoor rock-climbing gym, and one of the first in the nation. From its humble beginnings as The Body Shop back in the 80’s to three best-in-class facilities today, The Front has never lost its soul or connection to its roots. The Front is led by three core values, which are outlined below. These values drive our day-to-day decisions as well as the future vision for our company. We expect every member of our team to embrace these values and believe they should align with your personal values to do so.
We do not offer easy jobs. We simply cannot slow down enough to kick back and relax while we are at work, but we highly encourage you to shut off your devices and email and disappear into the mountains on your own time.
Our culture is built on this level of work ethic, as well as integrity, community (we do not use that word lightly), and unity.
