Since its opening in August, The Ascent has challenged skyscraping climbers with three stories of paths and an expansive bouldering course. With day passes or family members in hand, visitors slip into harnesses, lace up pairs of climbing shoes, and tie on chalk bags, which are useful for ensuring a firm grip while scrawling the times table on the rock face. Eleven top ropes ascend 32 feet into the air, granting safe passage up crags coated in multicolored handholds and the distinctive footprints of plastic goats. Overhangs and angled walls challenge veterans, along with massive cracks that snake up select routes. Soft flooring and crash pads encircle the network of low-altitude bouldering runs, releasing climbers from dependence on ropes. All surmounters must sign a waiver before hitting the cliffs.

The Ascent

An indoor rock-climbing gym, The Ascent resides inside a cavernous, warehouse-like building where the angled walls are studded with handgrips and gravity challenges participants on every ascent. The facility's top-rope walls stretch as high as 32 feet, and angled walls bevel off into challenging overhangs where chalky-handed patrons cling tightly during ropeless bouldering runs. When opening the gym, owner Jeff Hess—familiar with the passion of bouldering enthusiasts—made sure to leave room for a 2,500-square-foot bouldering area, now located in the center of the large open space.

Jeff's efforts to foster community through climbing have lead to some unique fusions at The Ascent. The new auto-belay system enables climbers to climb without need for a partner. Additionally, a partnership with neighboring Crossfit Murfreesboro now affords The Ascent's members a bonus benefit, access to Crossfit’s cardio and weight-training facilities.
