Introducing Our New Logo!

innovative:

in·no·va·tive /ˈinəˌvādiv/ adjective: introducing or using new ideas or methods; having new ideas about how something can be done

We’re proud to introduce our new logo and look forward to all of the additional possibilities that are yet to come! A sentiment that is more true today than ever before, in pre-COVID19 days.

Since the very beginning, the word “innovative” has been at the root of who we are as a business and for 15+ years we’ve been working to keep innovation at the forefront of Edgeworks’ vision for the future.

Structurally, our facility has evolved from a 10,000 square foot climbing gym with gravel climbing floors to our current modern facility that features the things we only dreamed about in 2004. Strategically, we’re always striving to stay ahead of industry standards and keep up with our own aspirations for growth and advancement.

With all that we’ve accomplished over the years, it was time for the Edgeworks logo to offer a better reflection of who we are today and also move us forward into the next 15 years of innovation.

We will always continue to celebrate where we came from… 1 of the first 250 climbing gyms in the US , 1st in the South Sound, 4th in the Puget Sound, and 5th in Washington State. And, we’ll never stop working to achieve all that we know Edgeworks can be and what our community (you!) wants us to continue to be well into the future. #WeGotThisTacoma

Special thank you to designer Jinger Hendricks for our awesome new logo!

Member Spotlight March 2020

Aixa Ardín

Member since 2018

Where did you grow up and how did you end up in the Pacific Northwest?

Aixa: I grew up in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I wanted to move out from Puerto Rico and chose the PNW as my destination because of its high rainfall, natural spaces and outdoor activities.

What’s the story behind your becoming a climber? How did you end up at Edgeworks?

Aixa: As soon as I moved here I made friends who suggested I try climbing with them. Initially I declined the invitation for a year. When I finally gave in.I was immediately hooked. I became a member within a week.

If you had to choose between bouldering, top rope or lead climbing as the only form of climbing you could do from here on out, what would you choose and why?

Aixa: Top rope, I want to keep climbing well into my 70s and I feel this is the best way to minimize the chances of getting injured.

What type of music are you jamming out to lately?

Aixa: I listen to a lot of jazz and latin american music. In jazz I recommend the new recordings from Anat Cohen Tentet, Triple Helix and from Joey Alexander, Warna. From Latin America look for Ilé’s Almadura and Kevin Johansen’s Algo Ritmos.

What is one lesson you’ve learned as a climber that you would teach to your younger self who’s just starting out climbing?

Aixa: Have patience and train slowly.

Best part about Edgeworks?

Aixa: Plenty of auto belay anchors and it’s friendly community. I really enjoy participating in the POC and Queer night events that promote more inclusion and diversity.

Could you tell us something about you that our community members might not know? What’s your jam outside of Edgeworks?

Aixa: I am a poet, photographer and LGBTQ activist. What’s your jam outside of Edgeworks? Hiking around Washington and biking in Tacoma looking for good eats.

What’s your goal for the months ahead as far as climbing and fitness go?

Aixa: I am training to complete the Member Challenge point for 3 pull-ups, complete my lead certification and break the 5.10 threshold into a 5.11- before summer.
