Second Ascent to become Ascent Outdoors

Second Ascent to become Ascent Outdoors


Since 1996, Second Ascent has been supplying Seattle’s outdoor community with new, used, sample, and closeout gear.  Over the years our scope has expanded to include a diverse selection of high quality outdoor equipment, ranging from a focused collection for the budget-conscious buyer to curated top-of-the-line products for the cutting-edge enthusiast.  As we have evolved to meet these demands, second hand has become a smaller, though no less important, part of our store.

We are excited to announce the change of our name to Ascent Outdoors—a name which we feel will truly represent who we have become.

As Ascent Outdoors, we are committed to maintaining our footprint in the outdoor arena with a focus on the backcountry through sales of premium outdoor brands.  With the help of our personable and knowledgeable staff, we will continue to be community driven: focused on supporting our customers with fun, educational events and fundraisers that support local organizations to keep our industry thriving.

These changes will be made effective Monday, May 1st.  Because we value you, our customers, we would love for you to come out and help us celebrate the many years ahead with nightly events, and a week-long sale!

That's right. From May 1st-7th everything in the store will be 20% off! This includes used, closeouts, samples and new gear & apparel. 

Each night at 5:00pm-Close we will be providing snacks and serving up some delicious refreshments and ciders from local Ballard breweries. 

Each night we will be hosting a series of events here at the shop. Click on the link HERE to see the full list of events.
