Climbing Up For Air 2020 has officially wrapped up and you. ALL. CRUSHED!!! This past Sunday we witnessed a mind-bending number of laps up and down the walls, and the biggest forearms we’ve ever seen in our life!

The action began at 10 a.m. with 4- and 8-hour groups starting off HOT! The most ambitious participants stuck around til 6 p.m., while a second wave of 4-hour participants joined midday. But as the event’s end neared, even the most pumped climbers laced up their shoes to squeeze in some final pitches, all for a chance to win some b.e.a.utiful mugs hand made by Kim Hall of Alpine Earthworks Pottery, not to mention arguably the year’s proudest bragging rights.

Speaking of winners, shout out to Cody Lee who took first place, having climbed over 100 pitches!! (We’re pooped just thinking about it!)

But no matter how many routes you climbed, all 113 of you absolutely crushed the day! We’re wildly impressed by each and every one of you, considering we’re peelin’ off the wall in our normal sessions around hour one or two!

And The Front Salt Lake didn’t hold out, either! Many joined in on the fun, including one who participant who cruised up 341 total routes … O.M.G.!

While getting in a killer workout with your best friends, you also supported and helped raise money for Breathe Utah and Utah Clean Energy – two local organizations that fight for cleaner air along the Wasatch.

CUFA may be over (for this year, anyway 😉), but we can sense that the energy to better our air quality is still high!! If you’re amped on fighting the good fight, join our Impact Coalition to continue supporting clean air and other great causes all year long.

*There are still a few Up For Air events left in 2020, so we’ll report back on the final total amount we helped raise!*
