First Ascent Climbing & Fitness was built by climbers for climbers of all ability levels, from new climbers to seasoned experts and everyone in between. Our mission is to share our love of climbing with everyone, so we’re glad you made it here and we’re excited to welcome you in.

Our four Chicago facilities feature world-class rock climbing terrain, a full schedule of yoga classes, state-of-the-art fitness equipment, and a down-to-earth vibe. A membership to one facility gives you access to all. Click below to learn more, and let’s climb!
