We’re proud to celebrate the 20,000 milestone this month. If we could sit around a campfire swapping stories with every single one of you, we would. Together, we accomplish more. We defend wild places. We develop and teach safe climbing standards. We host events that welcome new climbers into our fold.
Below, meet 20 of your fellow members. We asked them to tell us about their motivations and dreams, and their responses give us a peek into the wonderful and diverse community we've become— click on their photos to learn more about each of them.
