Why Climbing?

Climbing requires you to be present in both mind and body, and often the “disability” holding you back is in the mind.

In this sport, adaptive equipment is required even for able-bodied climbers. Harnesses, ropes, ice tools, and other gadgets aid in ascending the wall for people of all abilities, adaptive athletes do not necessarily need adaptive equipment to go climbing.

We are passionate about engaging everyone in climbing and the climbing community because the community is what keeps us coming back.

What We Do

Paradox offers accessible climbing experiences for people with disabilities, defying the perception that people with a disability cannot lead a life of adventure. Challenges include both indoor and outdoor rock climbing, ice climbing and mountaineering.
