First Ascent Membership Details

GroundUP_1_EDIT-6

At our groundbreaking ceremony we announced our First Ascent Membership pricing and started signing up our first Übergrippen members. We were very pleased by the immediate response and are extremely excited to be able to open up membership pre-sales to the entire NE Denver community!  For our first 250 members to sign up we offer some pretty incredible benefits including our Price for Life membership rate!  That is a deal you will certainly want to get in on. First Ascent members pay their initiation fee at time of enrollment and won’t be billed for their fist month membership dues until we have our Grand Opening in spring 2017.   You can attend one of our membership signup events or by contacting us directly at membership@ugclimbing.com.


Groundbreaking Ceremony

On June 18th we hosted a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the future crag!  Even though the temperatures were well into the 90’s that day, we hosted over 100 people at the event. We went through 20 gallons of water, iced tea, and lemonade and 150 Otter-Pops keeping the crowd cool and comfortable. We were even lucky to have Denver Councilman Herndon in attendance.  He commented to me after the event that in his time in office he has attended many groundbreaking ceremonies, but has NEVER seen that many people show up! Thank you to all that came and showed your support for our “awesome” business!

We had people from all of our surrounding neighborhoods in attendance including Stapleton, Aurora, Park Hill, Montclair, East Colfax, Lowry, Congress Park, and City Park South (sorry if I missed anybody). We received great comments about the location and its accessibility to everyone (we even met quite a few people that rode their bikes and walked over!).  Our location at the intersection of Central Park Boulevard and Montview Boulevard will make it easily accessible to all of our neighbors.

This event gave us the opportunity to introduce ourselves to our future members.  We were able to show off the facility floor plans and shared details of the facility including great rock climbing, yoga studio, fitness spaces, and our future cafe and taproom. We are also so excited to bring a unique outdoor space with ample community space.

Following the groundbreaking we opened up our pre-opening First Ascent membership signup. It was great to see the strong interest in joining our crag. Since then, we have been taking additional signups from those that were unable to attend the groundbreaking.

We are still waiting on final approval from the City of Denver. Our contractor is ready to go and will start the ground work as soon as the permit is issued.  We are going through the permitting process at a time when our city is seeing tremendous growth which has caused unexpected delays.  Please bear with us as we navigate this process.
