The CWA is a trade association dedicated to protecting, connecting, and educating the indoor climbing industry. Since 2014, Perfect Descent has sponsored the annual Climbing Wall Summit, a gathering of climbing gym professionals to learn, share, and advocate on behalf of indoor climbing. With the cancellation of the 2020 Climbing Summit due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Perfect Descent invested our sponsor dollars in supporting the CWA Membership Assistance Program, which set out to connect climbing gyms globally by giving every climbing gym in the world a free, 1-year CWA membership.
CULTURE & EVENTS
More than just competition, Perfect Descent sponsors cultural and community events intended to educate and inspire, including training sessions lead by professional climbers, conference socials, climbing films, and film festivals.
