Anyone that may be doing a winter ascent of Mt Baldy, please be on the lookout for this woman. She’s my friend’s aunt and was last seen alone ascending the summit trail on 2/13/21. Dogs were able to trace her scent to the summit, so they know she made it that far. At this point, 10 days have passed so it is most likely a body recovery. LA Fire and Rescue have had to scale back their search because of weather conditions. I just want her family to be able to get some closure. Please share to get the word out. Thank you.
My friends and me (taking the picture) at a climbing gym in St. Louis. 30 years ago, today! Okay staff, what 2 things would NOT fly today? (Fashion excluded)
Reminds me of the Stronghold bouldering corridor.
I am very sad!
Selling some TCPros if you’re interested.
Hi There! My son has recently started rock climbing and now I'm climbing too after a 17 year break. He'd really love to try some outdoor climbs but I'm not qualified to do that. The internet tells me that there are several companies around here that will take you out for a day of climbing. Does anybody have any experience with any of them?
Trying to get our sweatshirts back :)

You may have seen a Brewery security guard in a cowboy hat, overalls and badge on campus. His name is Stosh, and he's been going out of his way to patrol the parking on S Ave 21 in an effort to keep our vehicles safe.

As a thank you (and a help to us all) we've launched a GoFundMe to buy Stosh this kick-ass patrol vehicle. Please consider chipping in what you can. You can even donate anonymously. Let's show Stosh some love!

The Stronghold is a full-service climbing gym near Downtown Los Angeles, in the Brewery Arts Complex. Come climb with us! Check out our website at http://strongholdclimb.com/

We hope to climb with you soon.

Self Rescue is no joke. That's why we have a clinic dedicated to just that.

This 6-week intensive class will help climbers build different skill sets to get themselves out of a rescue situation. A lot can go wrong in the mountains/crag: maybe you drop your belay device, or your partner gets injured, or your rope is damaged during rock fall. What do you do?

Joshua Tree season is here, and former Stronghold members Rich and Morty (a favorite crag pup) have developed a new accommodation option. Their new climber's ranch in JTree has water on-site, hot showers, power hookups, full outdoor kitchen, fire pits, etc. right outside the park. Rich is an AMGA-certified guide who is also offering guide service. For details check them out at https://www.hipcamp.com/en-US/california/richard-c-s-land-8/barking-owl-climber-camp-joshuatree and follow them on Instagram @thebarkingowl.

Wishing everyone heading out to JTree this winter good climbs. Remember to leave no trace - this delicate desert area deserves our respect and protection.

It's desert rock season, friends! Keep a p**p bag in your pack in case nature calls when you're far out in a fragile desert destination like Red Rocks or Joshua Tree. P**p in the bag & spare the crag! 💩 We have p**p bags available at cost ($2). They include toilet paper and a cleansing wipe for your hands, and seal up nicely after use. 💩

We are now preparing for the City of Los Angeles' new requirement that all gym staff, members, and visitors are fully vaccinated to utilize the facilities, starting November 6th. "Fully vaccinated" is defined as 14 or more days after completing the entire recommended series of vaccinations. Children under the age of 12-years-old who are ineligible to receive the vaccination are exempt.

At your request, we can record your vaccination status in our system by showing a physical, digital, or photo of your card. Otherwise showing proof upon check-in will be required. If you are already in our system, then you're all good to go!

Our community's health and safety is a top priority when dealing with the pandemic. As per county ordnance, masks will still be required throughout the gym regardless of vaccination status.

We appreciate your understanding in regards to these policies and hope we can all continue to support one another during these unprecedented times.
