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.

🚨Go fish! 🐠 You might have noticed our new tagging system at our other facilities. This week, we are using the new tags on our newest set of boulders. 

All climbs will be graded using the V-Scale. Hold color and tag color may not be the same! Make sure to check the grade and color on the tag to find the right climb. 
 
This system allows us to be more specific in our routesetting and will help new climbers become familiar with commonly used grading systems. Talk with a team member if you need help finding the correct grade for you.
