About Us

The Front Climbing Club was Utah's first indoor rock-climbing gym, and one of the first in the nation. From its humble beginnings as The Body Shop back in the 80's to three best-in-class facilities today, The Front has never lost its soul or connection to its roots. The Front is led by three core values, which are outlined below. These values drive our day-to-day decisions as well as the future vision for our company. We expect every member of our team to embrace these values and believe they should align with your personal values to do so. Our culture is built on this level of work ethic, as well as integrity, community (we do not use that word lightly), and unity. All that said, we also know how to have a good time.

Distinctive Facilities with Emotional Depth//

We design and build outstanding and unique facilities that are the "3rd place" for the broader outdoor community, and we maintain and improve our facilities with the utmost attention to detail and care. This creates a foundation for organic and fostered emotional connections with our members and between our members, leading to long-term, loyal, and proud members.

We add depth and authenticity to our facilities by supporting and contributing to our local communities through volunteerism, educated activism, and both financial and non-financial support.

Operational Prowess and Superiority//

We develop and continually improve elegant, efficient, and documented operational processes that underpin a disciplined approach to effective facility operations. We look outside the climbing industry for guidance and inspiration, and strive to be at the industry forefront in all respects. We safeguard our industry edge and protect company assets through discretion and care.

We use data to inform and guide our operations. Data gathering and analytics are foundational in improving our facilities, increasing our operational efficiency, expanding our individual capacities, and facilitating efficient teamwork. We adhere to efficient and organized business practices that utilize technologies to continually improve the level of operational excellence we promise to our members.

We have high expectations of one another-to work hard and to be thoughtful. We take pride in and maintain integrity in our work. We are disciplined, focused, and resilient. We thrive on the sharp end. Falling short of a challenging goal, when a thoughtful and concerted effort is employed, is not failure. We undertake challenging projects with forethought and see them through to comprehensive completion.

We collaborate and innovate as a means to create exceptional value for our members, our company, and ourselves.
