Reach for the sky and climb nearly 1,700 stairs to the top of the West Coast’s tallest building during the 20th Annual Stair Climb for Los Angeles! Each step you take benefits the impactful work of the Ketchum-Downtown YMCA and helps raise vital funds to support critical programs for children, teens, families, and seniors in the community.

Climb up for a thrilling vertical race or step at your own pace. Just like the mission of Y programs, you will focus your energy upwards and feel a huge sense of accomplishment! Plus, you, friends, and family are sure to enjoy a great day filled with climbing, music, food, firefighters, and fun at the Race Expo.


During this incredible annual event, participants from around the country race up 1,500 steps to the top of the U.S. Bank Tower in downtown LA in support of Ketchum YMCA’s community programs.


Four-person teams combine their strength to conquer the tallest building West of the Mississippi, followed by public safety personnel in full uniform and the individual category as well.
