The Adaptive Climbing Initiative
Student Resources

Our goal is to help make every climbing gym and program in the country accessible for people with disabilities.

Paradox ACI Courses are the resource for those interested in building an inclusive adaptive climbing program in their community. We frequently update this resources page to ensure our students have access to as much knowledge as possible to make a high impact. The following resources are not exhaustive, rather recommended as complementary to our training material.

If you are interested in hosting an ACI course in your community, please email us at
