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.
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).
