Upcoming Feature Event:

Reel Rock 18

March 6th & 7th at 7 PM at The Lyric

We're stoked to be sponsoring this year's Fort Collins Reel Rock 18 premiere at The Lyric! Immerse yourself in four gripping new climbing films from across the globe: a visionary first ascent on Japan’s mythical Mt. Mizugaki; a climbing community held together in war-torn Ukraine; a treacherous free ascent of Jirishanca in the Peruvian Andes; and an exploration of Mallorca’s deep-water soloing.

We'll have a booth at each screening with some freebies, and we have a giveaway live on our Instagram until Friday, March 1st! Go check out our Instagram (@ascentstudio) for the giveaway details!

Our wonderful hosts Lauren (she/her) and Shiloh (they/them) will gather up the group at the start of the meetup so everyone can learn each other's names and some fun facts before diving into some climbing.

$10 Day Pass with rentals included | Always FREE for members!

Dog Adoption & Puppy Stretching

March 30th 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Big Bones Canine Rescue is coming to Ascent to get some pups adopted! There will be puppies, senior doggos, and everything in between. If you want your heart strings pulled, come check out the dogs from their rescue! Even if you aren't in the market for adoption, Big Bones is always looking for new foster parents to take care of dogs before they move to their forever homes.

We will be doing a Puppy Stretching class from 10:30 - 11:30 AM, which is one part puppy play time, and one part basic yoga-like flow. We are asking for a $5 donation for the Puppy Stretching class to help support the work Big Bones does to protect and find homes for our furry friends.


We want to celebrate YOU - the awesome humans that make Ascent great - on social media! Our goal is to incorporate 1-2 member highlights/shout-outs on our Instagram/Facebook each week!

How it works:

  • Fill out the Google Form linked below
  • We will put together a highlight based on the info you provide and send it your way, get a thumbs up from you (and edit as needed), and have you send us back 1-3 photos!
  • Once we get your approval on the text & get back your photos, we will let you know when your highlight is scheduled to be posted.
  • P.S. You don't have to be on Instagram/Facebook to participate (you just won't be tagged, obviously)!
