More than Climbing

Climb Your Rock is not just a tagline, it is how we approach challenges in life- directly, strategically, and relentlessly.

growing together

Providing Growth Opportunities for our Community.

When we encounter anything challenging, we are all met with a combination of two responses.

One tells us that we are unable to accomplish a feat and lays out a compelling logical argument why we cannot.  This response diverts our attention away from our goals to things that may be more certain.  Safer.  It tells us that not meeting a goal means we are a failure, personally. 

The other tells us that we are capable of solving the challenge.  We inherently believe we can learn the skills  and find resources along the way.  We'll figure it out; we'll grow; and that motivates us.  

We are a community of ‘the others’.   We believe that embracing challenge makes us stronger, more capable, more creative.   We believe that we develop with a like-minded community, who are willing to push our limits and encourage us.  We hold each other accountable.  We know it is not the achievement that makes us stronger, but the climb.

At The Ascent, we are about empowerment, from Kids Rock to Adaptive Climbing; Climb for a Cause or competitive teams – our mission is to grow our abilities and confidence as we work toward our goals.

From our Community

I highly recommend Ascent. I'm terrified of heights, and the staff and ownership of the gym have helped me to overcome a big piece of that fear. Plus, it's fun! I love getting on the walls. The courses change regularly, so it doesn't get stale. My whole family goes. It's a great workout. Ascent rock climbing gym is one of the best times you can have in Murfreesboro.

Best gym and staff ever!!
- Justin

This is an awesome gym! The staff are friendly and know what they're doing and it's a reasonable price. I've been going for a couple months now and got a membership which I'm pleased about!
- Gwen

My Kids got to try it thanks to The McFadden School of Excellence and now they want to keep going. They like the challenge and being able to conquer their fear of heights. The higher they went up the more confident they became.
