Danielle Poggi took ownership of a struggling rock-climbing gym in 2014, and rebranded it to what is now Climb Base5. The word ‘base’ was chosen because she wanted the gym to be a welcoming ground for climbers to meet, establish a connection, and build meaningful relationships within the climbing community. Today, with two locations in North Vancouver and Coquitlam, the gym continues to place a strong emphasis on inclusivity, having fun, and discovery.
As the company continues to evolve, Poggi is looking to create an ecommerce store through Moneris so she can offer more consumers the opportunity to purchase her merchandise. With their gyms, portable climbing wall, and retail store, the business continues to welcome people who are eager to share their passion, explore their creativity, and build a stronger community of climbers and like-minded individuals.
