Climbing with VITAL Climbing Gym

The VITAL Climbing Gym and Shifting Gears have come together for all-women evening climbing sessions! VITAL Climbing Gym is located in downtown Bellingham. Their mission is to create places that people love. 

Join Shifting Gears at VITAL once a month! VITAL offers participants discounted day passes ($14) and free shoe rentals if needed; mention Shifting Gears! 

We'll be there to climb and connect over our love for the outdoors casually. While the gym may be open to the public, we hope you'll join us as we support each other through rock climbing. 


Experience is not necessary, and all levels are welcome!

Why: This climbing session is all about creating a community and taking down barriers within the sport of rock climbing. We want to create an inclusive and empowering environment that allows growth and joy.

What to Bring: Wear something comfortable to move around in, climbing shoes, and/or chalk if you have any.


We're in this together and have a blast! If there's anything we can do or should know to help you have your best day on the wall, let us know. Our number one goal is always: to have so much fun!
