About Us

Before choosing a partner of any kind, you should find out about them. Here is a glimpse of what makes us tick.

Our Mission


Our mission is to get people out of their comfort zones in a safe and controlled environment.

Adventure combined with nature creates a perfect balance. Adventure produces fear; nature promotes peace. With the two combined, we've found it to be a powerful way to change lives. Adventure gets a bad reputation for being dangerous. For us it's not about pushing to the extreme; it's about pushing beyond the comfortable. 

CLIMB, for us, is a way of life. In other words, it means to always challenge ourselves, always learn new things, always seek to inspire or be inspired until we overcome and master the challenge. Then we own that challenge. It's ours. We believe it. 

Proudly, we can say that CLIMB Works is what it is today because of a lot of sweat, sacrifice, teamwork, and all the right people at the right time. As we look back, it's hard not to be in awe how it all came together, but that's what helps us know we're moving in the right direction. 


Its not about pushing to the extreme. It’s about pushing just beyond the comfortable.
— Nick Thompson, Owner

Our history

CLIMB Works began from the idea that people can accomplish more than they ever thought they could – they just need a little help to step outside of their comfort zone. In 2006 when CLIMB Works began, this idea was brought to pass through ropes courses. And now, ziplining is our way to bring this idea to a larger number of people. While we have built zipline courses throughout the country since 2008, our pride and joy, CLIMB Works Canopy, opened in Gatlinburg, TN in June 2010. 

We believe in quality. CLIMB Works is what it is today because of our focus on providing the customer with the best experience possible. We firmly believe that if we create an incredible experience and not cut any corners, everything else will fall into place.
