"We are a hobby club for both local and international climbers for Squamish climbing. People are super friendly, chill and social, don't really care about who climbs this or that or how hard. People volunteers to host indoor, outdoor climbing & social events (called meetups). Membership is required for everyone due to  insurance policy. For outdoor, we typically have weekly dinner where people gather social, have dinner and discuss weekend plans. We climb and camp every weekend in Squamish and we call it Weekend Rampage (rampage's name come from www.squamishrampage.ca). In winter, we go to Lillooet to ice climb every weekend. We also run trainings (called Rockstar training) to develop future leaders and ambassadors in the group itself to be sustainable. On top of this, we have some charity minded individuals and we volunteer for access groups and organize 2 annual fundraisers for different charities: one in Christmas and one in Summer called Squamish Rampage. On top of this, we also founded Climb and Conquer, a program using rock climbing and mentorship to support youth from disadvantaged backgrounds." -Joe Wong (Founder)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
