Our goal is to promote and protect Ohio’s climbing for generations to come. The OCC has a robust, active membership base who, together, form a grassroots network that not only increases climbers’ influence on local policy issues, but acts as a channel for extending climbing advocacy and stewardship work.

NRAC exists to preserve and promote access to climbing areas, and to conserve climbing resources in the New River Gorge and surrounding areas. The New River Gorge is an international destination and world-class climbing area with thousands of traditional and sport climbs, and a rapidly expanding selection of equally world-class bouldering areas. Learn how you can preserve and protect one of America’s great climbing areas.

RRGCC is dedicated to securing and protecting open, public access to rock climbing in the Red River Gorge area of Kentucky and promoting conservation of the environment on the lands where we climb.

AAC’s goal is to share and support our passion for climbing and respect for the places we climb. We’re climbers. Gym climbers and trad climbers. Sport climbers and mountaineers. Boulderers, backcountry skiers, and alpinists. We’re the largest community of rock-scaling misfits in the country—and you belong here.

 

The expansion is open today!

Named Spirillum’s Conquest this complex but fun beta will challenge your strength, flexibility, and technique! Great footwork is key to sending this route. Practice slabby feet and rock overs to master the sequence. Thank you to @zainthemann for showing us the beta 🙌

This is an excellent climb to practice a key techniques. Embrace the smearing technique and use this climb to perfect your footwork. This climb is also excellent to practice driving upwards using momentum to catch the next hold perfectly. Make this climb even more difficult by doing sets of ‘sticky hands’ or ‘sticky feet’. This means wherever you first placed your hand or foot on the hold it has to remain there until moving to the next hold.

This clinic will work with members to analyze how some betas make climbs feel easier by emphasizing efficiency rather than relying on maximum strength. We discuss strategies for creating efficient movement by focusing on how body positioning can make movements less effortful and contribute to the development of "flow". Wednesday, September 7, 7-7:45pm. Link in bio.

In order to prevent from raising prices 5.Life has decided to end Perkville. These times require us to make hard decisions as we endeavor to continue to provide the best experience possible across all facilities. Core member benefits will remain the same: unlimited climbing at all locations, bottomless first-time guest passes, discounted programming, free clinics, member appreciation events, and 15% discount in the pro shop. One free guest pass will be automatically loaded on to all member Rock Gym Pro accounts at the beginning of each month. Existing Perkville points will be converted to day passes which you can pick up at your next visit to the gym. You are the heart of our community and we hope that you understand. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to membership@5.life.
