As an organization that delivers trips and trainings across the country, we are acutely aware of the impact coronavirus and COVID-19 is having on all communities, and we will continue to monitor and follow CDC guidelines and recommendations as we enter our spring programming season. Please see our recent Letter from Executive Director Dave Elmore for more information about the impact on our programs, and email us at if you have questions or concerns.

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.
