  • Grassroots Fitness Project 371 Amsterdam Avenue New York, NY, 10024 United States (map)


Our mission is to introduce the wonderful sport of climbing to as many people as possible.

Climbing is one of the fastest growing sports in America. It has recently been added to the 2020 olympics. This wonderful sport has strong ties to the outdoor experience. Environmental stewardship and respect for the fragile relationship humans have with the natural world are inherent in this sport.

Grassroots would love to share our passion for climbing with as many people as possible in the epic climbing destination of New Paltz, NY
