Why Join the Initiative?

The Adaptive Climbing Initiative Course, sponsored by The North Face, allows facilitators and individuals to connect adaptive athletes with the climbing community.

Since many people first experience the sport of climbing through a gym, hosting a course helps facilities draw new memberships while increasing the diversity of the climbing community. Attending a course is a great opportunity for guides, students, climbing facilitators, recreational climbers, and anyone interested in adaptive climbing to improve rapport and approachability with people of different backgrounds while providing an intriguing challenge.

How It Works

Supported by The North Face, Paradox Sports has created a comprehensive training program to help make climbing facilities more accessible to people with physical disabilities.

This two day course gets climbing facilitators the experience and equipment they need to offer quality adaptive climbing programs for these individuals in their communities.
