The Premier Stair-Climbing Event in Los Angeles

Our Fight For Air Climb is designed for every type of climber, from beginners to competitive climbers.

How you climb is up to you: race to the top or take it at your own speed.

Where you'll be climbing

The Fight For Air Climb has returned to the LA Memorial Coliseum. Known as “The Greatest Stadium in the World”, the Coliseum legacy of events hosted in the last century reads like no other. The LA Memorial Coliseum is the perfect setting for a day of fun, challenge and community.
