As one of the nation’s premier adaptive outdoor recreation organizations Paradox Sports is dedicated to our mission:
Revolutionizing lives through adaptive climbing opportunities that defy convention
Paradox Sports seeks to recognize and foster an individual’s potential and strength, defying the assumption that people with a physical disability cannot lead a life of excellence. We provide inspiration, opportunities, and specialized adaptive equipment so that anyone can be an active participant in human-powered sports.
We believe it is important to start with the “Why?” – the purpose of Paradox Sports. Since 2007, Paradox Sports has been a place to connect, push your limits, and change beliefs about what is possible with a disability. Over the years Paradox Sports has changed and grown but at the core, the unwavering dedication to living fully and in the moment has always remained. Climbing requires you to be present in both mind and body, and often the “disability” holding you back is in the mind. Climbing, as a sport in general, requires adaptive equipment even for able-bodied climbers. Harnesses, ropes, ice tools, and other gadgets aid in ascending the wall for people of all abilities, adaptive athletes do not necessarily need adaptive equipment to go climbing. We are passionate about engaging everyone in climbing and the climbing community because the community is what keeps us coming back.
