Climbing Community

Learn a new skill or connect to a community event by visiting our Gym Calendar. See below for a list of local and national climbing organizations and community groups who can help take your climbing to new heights.

Climbing is for everyone. We are offering specially designated days to encourage connection and diversity as well as making climbing more accessible. $9 day passes with rental gear included for individuals who identify on applicable community rock climbing days.

The Access Fund is a nonprofit advocacy organization that leads and inspires the climbing community toward sustainable access and conservation of the climbing environment.

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.

@caleb_hoover_1 has developed a new training regime for the climbing season🤣 Weight yourself down with miscellaneous items that will wildly swing around. This will be a full body workout and test your balance. This is the perfect workout for those getting ready to haul gear to the crag or up it!

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.
