We are drawn to climbing because it provides adventure and fulfillment and uncovers the best in our partners and ourselves. The sport has grown significantly as the number of climbing gyms has increased and more people have access to the activity and lifestyle.
 
As climbing transitions from its counterculture heritage in natural settings to urban and indoor environments, how does the climbing community build on its legacy as a foundation for inclusivity? What influence does social media, technology, climbing gyms, and the Olympics have on the way climbing evolves?

Join us for an interesting dialogue as we hear diverse perspectives around the opportunities in front of the climbing community.
