‘Tis the season! Let us make some recommendations for everyone on your gift list.

For the long-term partner-in-climb, who loves tracking miles and always gives a soft catch:

Treat them to a Limited Edition Suunto Ambit 3 AAC Watch— they deserve it.

For the cragging buddy who offers you a cold one after every send (or flail):


Repay the favor by gifting them this Mountainsmith Cooler with an AAC logo, stocked with their favorite brews.

For the old-school climbing geek:


Give them the gift of historical inspiration- and a beautiful centerpiece for their coffee table- with a collectible book from our library.

For that friend who’s always cold, at the crag or in the gym:


Keep them cozy with a mountains pullover hoody, and get bonus points for the sweet graphic.

For the climber pal who’s made you utilize your WFR training:


Make sure it doesn’t happen again by letting them learn from Accidents in North American Mountaineering.

For those who believe the descent can be as fun—or more fun—than the ascent:


Go big with a gift so your loved one or friend can go big on these custom skis (or, treat yourself—you deserve it!). We've partnered with Meier Skis and artist Noelle Phares to create a custom AAC ski built just for you.

For literally everyone:


There’s never been a better time to give the gift of AAC membership— the gift that keeps them safe, inspired, and climbing on. Learn more about why every climber should be part of the Club.
