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

OUR STORY

OUR ORIGIN

In 2011, co-founders Alice Kao, Wes Shih, and Wes Chu began climbing together at a local gym in Los Angeles. For each of them, rock climbing was an avenue for self-discovery and a wellspring for community during transitional times in their lives.
When the founders opened the first Sender One, they found in each other a shared experience and motivation for climbing -- to discover themselves and connect with others. This naturally became Sender One’s main purpose -- a purpose they wanted to share with as many people as possible. While visitors may come to climb on the beautiful walls, they end up staying because of the community they find and what they learn about themselves through climbing.

OUR PURPOSE

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).

OUR CORE VALUES

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

SHARE OUR PASSIONS

Share the love for something that makes you happy -- whether it’s climbing, working with kids, or instructing.
