Get Your Climb On (or GYCO) is a meetup that brings together rock climbing & outdoor enthusiasts of all experience levels through meetups throughout California at destination-outdoor climbing venues, indoor rock climbing gyms, and social gatherings such as happy hours, BBQs & more. The main goal is to create an inclusive, diverse, fun, safe, friendly, collaborative, community from the ground up--A community that encourages one another to learn outdoor leadership skills, to enjoy the sense of community, teamwork, and a community that plans safe & fun climbing meet ups throughout California & beyond!

Those new to rock climbing can benefit through beginner friendly meetups geared toward introducing the sport with some basic and beneficial information. Experienced climbers will easily find potential climbing partners through any of the gatherings this meetup has to offer. Members span the full gamut of climbing styles, from indoor gym climbing, to outdoor sport, top roping, multi-pitch traditional climbing, bouldering, ice climbing, hiking and occasional mountaineering meetups. Get Your Climb On promotes safe rock climbing through meetups that expose members to new safety concepts and techniques. GYCO members, organizers or “Ambassadors of Fun” are constantly learning from others and happy to share their knowledge. And most of all we get out and climb & hang out with awesome people!

As a member you will be able to check activities on this website, and create your own trips/events. Note that all trips should be for GYCO by GYCO, and self powered. People-Powered Progress empowers a community!!!

GYCO encourages its members to organize trips but does not supervise the activities in an official manner. GYCO is not a climbing guide service and a person should only go on trips they feel are appropriate for their ability and experience level.

Please be respectful when you RSVP to events, and only RSVP if you know you will make the event especially if there is a limited number of spots available. If you end up with three no-shows; whether it's a no call/no show, or a cancel at the last minute; you may be removed from organizing a meetup upon a review committee decision but we hope this is a non issue of course in the spirit of safe fun.

If you do not want to receive all GYCO meetup email notifications simply go to your settings on your GYCO profile and uncheck the box that reads "email notification." You can always change it later if you want to get all meetup email notifications.

If you have questions, ask a meet up Event Organizer! Many Event Organizers love to help out new members and will gladly answer any questions you have about the trip, what equipment to bring, carpools, camping logistics etc. Above all else, have fun and be safe!

Get Your Climb On

Cheers
