2018 Walls are meant for climbing - Karen Robards Photography

We love our community! We recognize that we are part of something special and want to share it with others. We actively seek out ways to connect our members and guests with one another, and when we find like-minded organizations, we encourage those connections. We recognize the person before the climber, and prefer kindness to capability.

From local non-profits, to gear shops, to outdoor educators, we strive to develop partnerships with some of the most passionate organizations in our community, those willing to do what it takes to make a difference.
