ABOUT THE FACILITY


Session is truly unique. We are the North Bay's only climbing, fitness and community hub designed and built from the ground up. We have obsessed over every square inch of this land to maximize the quality of your experience. Coming late 2019 to downtown Santa Rosa.

KEVIN JORGESON

Most people recognize Kevin from his 2015 first ascent of Dawn Wall in Yosemite National Park with partner Tommy Caldwell. What most don't know is that Kevin brings also 15 years of route setting experience to Session. Additionally, Kevin has travelled the country as a coach/instructor to help prepare the nation's top youth competitors for their upcoming championship events. Kevin will be active in all aspects of Session.
