We believe in a world that is united by difference, bound by empathy, and strengthened by understanding. Walls are meant for climbing.

Since 1966, we have viewed walls not as obstacles, but as opportunities.

From the big walls of Yosemite to the high peaks of the Himalayas, we were searching for a personal kind of freedom.
In this pursuit, we found a community – strengthened by different stories, experiences and perspectives.
This community has shown us that the only way forward is together.
We believe in a world that is united by difference, bound by empathy and strengthened by understanding.

Walls Are Meant For Climbing.



We’ve teamed up with gyms all over the world to provide inclusive climbing opportunities, lower barriers to entry, and celebrate Global Climbing Day on August 24th.
For every climber that takes part in a Global Climbing Day event at a participating gym in Australia and New Zealand, The North Face will donate $1 to a fund that will go towards Cliff Care, Crag Care and New Zealand Alpine Club, so they can continue to work on key projects across Australia and New Zealand.
