Our Story | LA & Orange County's Best Climbing Gym | Sender One



Sender One’s purpose is to discover ourselves and connect with others through climbing.

Every individual who climbs with us has a unique story. We vow to foster a space that offers inspiring climbing, yoga, and fitness experiences; an opportunity for self-discovery, and a sharing, social atmosphere for every member, new visitor, guest, and partner who walks through our doors (or who we meet outside of our doors).


These are the core values we live, breathe, and demonstrate every day.


Share the love for something that makes you happy -- whether it’s climbing, working with kids, or instructing.
Allow others the opportunity to experience what you feel.


Harness your imagination and find novel approaches to shared responsibilities.


Allow learning and growth from each task, challenge, and interaction while seeing them through to the end.


Conscientiously see things from the perspective of others and help them understand yours.


Work together, support each other, share ideas, and earn trust.


Tackle challenges head-on while accepting the possibility of falling; knowing and trusting that your teammates have your back.


Current Locations:

Sender One SNA (Santa Ana)

2013: We opened the doors to our very first full-service climbing facility in Santa Ana, California.
This gym is home to the original Sender City and offers bouldering and 50-foot rope climbing walls, including the iconic “Ice Cream Cone” feature. Round out your training on the fully kitted MoonBoard and our hangboards.
In 2018, we rented out the adjacent building which now houses two beautiful yoga studios, space for our aerial silks program, and an expanded fitness area.

Sender One LAX (Los Angeles)

2017: We said hello to our second full-service climbing facility and first in Los Angeles, California -- a short five-minute drive away from the Los Angeles International Airport.
This gym offers Sender City, a two-story bouldering area, top rope and lead climbing, yoga, and fitness. It is currently the tallest rope climbing facility in Southern California with the iconic centerpiece dubbed “The Torch” standing at 60 feet tall with 40 degrees of overhanging terrain.
End your sessions by watching planes close by from the top out boulder or relax in the sauna.

Sender One Training Center

2021: Nestled in the same complex and a short walk away from Sender One SNA, the Sender One Training Center is a space that focuses on dedicated trainers and competition climbers. This addition to the Sender One family houses two adjustable climbing boards, beautiful bouldering terrain, competition-focused routesetting and holds, and more training tools to meet the needs of any climber looking to get strong. It is currently open to our climbing teams and members during limited hours.

Sender One Playa Vista

2021: Playa Vista is our third location and our first bouldering only facility! A beautifully designed space inspired by the Playa Vista neighborhood and nearby ocean. This gym offers 7000+ SF of essential bouldering terrain, a Tension Board, a Tread Wall, and a fitness area.
Conveniently located at Runway Playa Vista, walking distance from restaurants, shops, entertainment, and Whole Foods.

Sender One Westwood

2024: After 4 years in development we finally opened our fourth location / second bouldering only facility in Westwood Village.  Located on Lindbrook Drive, between Westwood Boulevard and Glendon Avenue, near the UCLA campus, Sender One Westwood was once the site of the Mann Festival Theater.

Features of the 10,000-square-foot Westwood facility include a wide range of bouldering terrain on the main floor and a 2,000-square-foot mezzanine with training boards, fitness and yoga.

Sender One Lakewood (Lakewood)

2024: We opened our third full-service location in Lakewood, across the street from the Lakewood center, minutes from the Long Beach airport. 
The Lakewood gym perfectly complements our LAX and SNA gyms, offering unique bouldering, top rope, and lead terrain, along with intriguing crack climbs. 
This gym also features unique Sender City challenges as well as daily yoga classes and a fitness area.

The massive windows at Lakewood allow natural light to create an outdoor climbing experience indoors!
