1Climb began with a shared desire to take kids climbing and to take climbing to kids. Founders Dan Chancellor, of So Ill, and professional climber Kevin Jorgeson started 1Climb with the goal of introducing 100,000 kids to climbing. By partnering with the Boys and Girls Clubs across America, 1Climb is changing kids’ lives by building climbing walls in Boys and Girls Club facilities and taking club members to local climbing gyms.
With partnership from TRUBLUE Auto Belay and Eldorado Climbing Walls, 1Climb has built climbing walls in Boys and Girls Clubs across the country in cities like Denver, Los Angeles and Chicago, and more. With more walls scheduled to open in 2020, 1Climb is well on its way to introducing 100,000 kids to climbing.
