#unlikelyclimber Instagram Contest!

It’s The Pad Climbing’s #unlikelyclimber Contest!

You know what really inspires us? YOU. If there was a time in your life that you would never have seen yourself as a climber but you’re here today to do that, we want to see you. Are you an unlikely climber? You are if you say you are! Show us your stuff!

You don’t need to be a member of the gym. And you don’t need to be local to our areas – we want to see ALL of you!

Let’s see those creative videos, meaningful stories, and inspire people who don’t think climbing is for them.

For the entire month of May:

  • we’ll offer a refund on your day pass if you post an entry.
  • If we love it and repost your entry, we’ll give you 2 free 10-day passes. If you’re distant, we’ll send you some stickers!
  • If 100 OTHER people love your reposted entry, we’ll give you a shirt of your choosing. (We’ll ship!)
  • Top 5 posters for the month will get a FREE month and 4 10-day passes to give away OR, if they are not local to us, will get a gift certificate worth $75 to the local gear shop of their choice.
