  • Global Climbing Day

    Global Climbing Day

    Join us to celebrate the walls that unite us, not divide us.

    4:00 – 7:00 : CLIMBING
    7:00 – 10:00 : PARTY AT DOWNTOWN

    Climbing is about community. Whether you’re climbing routes with a partner or bouldering with a crash pad party, climbing has the power to bring people TOGETHER.

    In celebration of Global Climbing Day we will be offering day passes for buy-one-get-one-half-off (Or BOGOHO which is just really fun to say), and all members can bring a friend to climb for FREE! This will be for BOTH High Point Downtown and Riverside.

    Want some sweet prizes at the After Party Downtown? The North Face, Rock Creek and The Southeastern Climbers Coalition will all be there with gear for you to win by filling out your climbing bingo card. The North Face will also be donating $1 to the Khumbu Climbing Center for every climber who joins us for Global Climbing Day at High Point.

    So come out and enjoy a day of climbing and community! It wouldn’t be a celebration without a party Downtown! We’ll have music from High Point DJ Wesley Walker. The Hunter Museum of American Art will have an art piece display to highlight the history of climbing in the area. There will be food, and we’ll also have beer from our friends at Oddstory Brewing Co. on the deck that evening. Party starts at 7:00!

These guys do some awesome things for the climbing community, so if the free food/music/beer isn’t your thing, you should at least come check out what they have going on!
