“Life and climbing are not without challenges and hardships. A puzzle for the mind, privation for the body, and fuel for the soul” (Some dirtbag climber, 2019)
We are Beta Breakers. A San Francisco Bay Area climbing club, keen on solving the conundrums of both rock and life. We are vertical travelers driven on self-improvement and solidarity to express our passion for jagged endeavors.
We welcome all levels of climbers from beginners to the exceptionally talented. We do not discriminate but we do expect our members to adhere to club policies. Our goal is to provide our members with fun and adventurous climbing events, indoors and outdoors alike.
We are not professional guides thus each member and participants to our events are responsible for their personal safety and well-being. However, it is our objective to provide a safe environment for our members by following proper safe climbing/belaying procedures, insight to appropriate use of climbing gears from anchors to pros. Rock climbing is a dangerous sport nonetheless and accidents do occur. Personal responsibility is essential. By participating in our events, YOU AGREE NOT TO HOLD ORGANIZERS AND MEMBERS RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY
As stated in our introduction, all members and participants to our events are responsible for their own personal safety. We are not a professional guide. Members are responsible for inspecting gear and dangers present in both indoor and outdoor climbing areas.
RSVP for events that you have full intentions on attending. I understand that things happen in life, and some days you would have to bail. Please be mindful of others and communicate to the event organizer that you wont be able to make it NO REASON required (a repeat offender of flaking out will less likely be able to join future events however).
All members are expected to observe the following regulations:
1. Do not litter or vandalize the parks and crags and all other outdoor and indoor recreational areas we visit and use.
2. Do not steal or intentionally damage other people's belongings.
3. DO NOT HARASS OR ABUSE ANY PERSON AT ANYTIME.
VIOLATION TO ANY OF THESE IS SUBJECT TO IMMEDIATE DISMISSAL FROM THE CLUB.
If at any point a member felt they are being treated unethically, please contact me or Adam Robertson (Co-Organizer) and we will happily address the situation accordingly.
Training and Education:
Beta Breakers Club have partnered with SAANO Adventures who can readily provide professional guidance and training relating to different varieties of climbing disciploines from anchor building to alpine climbing. Contact Max Stewart (can be found in member directory) for further information.
