Thank You

Last Thursday over 500 people walked through the doors of the Palladium to celebrate the beginning of something incredible, something unprecedented.  People traveled from Tennessee, Southern Illinois, and even West Virginia to help launch Saint Louis’ premier indoor climbing gym: Climb So iLL.

Saint Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley made a special guest appearance and kicked the night off with a spirited speech that got people excited about Saint Louis’ future.  Live performance art, a film premiere, and a prize giveaway hosted by So iLL Holds kept energy in the space on high all night.  At the end of the day, that’s what this event was about: bringing people together and getting them excited about something positive.

Since the beginning, our intention has been to use Climb So iLL as a catalyst for change.  Building an indoor climbing facility was our dream, but building strong connections with the people around us is what we live for.  As young entrepreneurs, we measure our success not in dollars and cents or facts and figures, but rather, in the community that we build and the relationships that grow out of that community.

Without your support none of this would have been possible, and for that we are truly grateful.  On behalf of the entire Climb So iLL Team, thank you for celebrating with us.  We look forward to getting to know each and every one of you soon.

  1. I'm looking forward to visiting my friend in St. Louis and taking her here. She's never climbed before but is now anxiously waiting for the gym to open!
