The Basics

Company Name: Paradox Sports
Location: Eldorado Springs, Colorado
Founded: 2007
Full-Time Employees: 5
Products/Services: We are a non-profit organization focused on providing adaptive climbing opportunities, which include national rock and ice climbing trips, educational opportunities, which focus on training organizations in best practice and building local programs in order to create sustainable, accessible climbing programs.

The Culture

The best thing about working at Paradox Sports is: The community. We strive to build and inspire communities of adaptive athletes and volunteers.
When we’re not working, we’re: Climbing!
What we’re reading: True North by Bill George
What we’re listening to: The Sharp End podcast.
Inclusion in the outdoors matters because: We envision a world where inclusion, diversity and equity are the norm and underrepresented groups have equal access to climbing and a voice within the larger outdoor community. We understand the transformative power of the outdoors and believe climbing and inclusion is a powerful vehicle for forging communities, enhancing well-being, and creating empowered individuals.

Five years down the line, it’s our hope that: Paradox Sports has been part of the solution. Providing access to climbing opportunities for everyone and role modeling inclusivity for the larger community.
