Join us this Pride Month to say loud and proud: Climbing is for EVERYONE!

We’re spending all of June celebrating the LGBTQ+ folx in our community.

At every Touchstone gym you can pick up special edition Touchstone Pride pins for $5 and shirts for $25. 100% of all proceeds will go to California organizations that provide resources for our LGBTQ+ family. Stop by the front desk to grab yours and learn about the organization your gym is supporting!


In San Francisco, we’re teaming up with Mountain Hardwear to make Pride 2019 the best year yet.

First, we’re throwing an After Hours Pride Party at Dogpatch Boulders on Saturday, June 29th, 7p-10p with games, a DJ, food & drinks, Drag Bingo with Lady Camden, a prize raffle, and more! The party is free for members and $10 for non-members. ALL proceeds go to SF LGBT Center, so we encourage you to donate. RSVP for the party here:


We’ll also be marching in the San Francisco Pride Parade together on Sunday, June 30th. Be sure to look for us in the parade as we will be handing out limited edition Pride swag and spreading the love!


In Los Angeles, Cliffs of Id will also be hosting an After Hours Party in honor of Pride! Come celebrate with us on Saturday, June 29th 6-9p with food, beer, a silent auction, Drag Bingo with local queen Pickle, climbing, and more. This party is $20 for non-members and free for members with a suggested $10 donation. 100% of the proceeds will be going to LA LGBT Center, and donations are encouraged.

Queer Crush

Keep the LGBTQ+ party going all year round and join a monthly Queer Crush meetup at your Touchstone gym! Queer Crush is a monthly meetup where queer, trans, genderfluid, and nonbinary climbers can crush climbs and make friends.
