We can’t wait to show you what we’re building, so we’re hosting Hard Hat Tours as we prepare to open First Ascent Block 37. Come be one of the first to see our latest location come to life!

First Ascent Block 37 will feature 10,000 square feet of world-class bouldering terrain, state-of-the-art fitness equipment, two yoga and fitness studios, and locker rooms with showers – all at a convenient location in the heart of Chicago’s Loop.

During your Hard Hat Tour, we’ll show you all FA Block 37 has to offer and let you know how you can get early access to the facility.

We’re up on the 4th Floor, and we’ll meet you by the top of the escalator at the small door in our storefront to the right of our “Coming Soon” signage.
