Brain Dead and Arc'teryx Present ALL RISE Fest

Brain Dead and Arc’Teryx are joining forces to present ALL RISE Fest, a day-long celebration at the Long Beach Rising rock climbing gym in Long Beach, California.

Founded in 2021, ALL RISE is an experimental program founded by Brain Dead, Long Beach Rising, and rock climbing phenom Ashima Shiraishi with the mission of making climbing and outdoor activities more accessible to marginalized communities. So far, ALL RISE has built a free-to-all climbing wall inside Long Beach Rising and established a scholarship program for those who want to pursue the sport.

“It is our belief that bettering ourselves is synonymous with bettering our community. The ALL RISE Foundation is our way of giving our neighboring youth a new look at the world and themselves through climbing. ALL RISE is our promise to keep rising, together. ALL RISE. ALWAYS RISING,” writes the project description.
