What we're about

Welcome to Chicago’s #1 rock climbing group!

We’re a varied group of rock climbers, ice climbers, and boulderers of all ages and skills. We have regular climbing events at various gyms throughout the city, as well as outdoor trips to crags near and far.

Whether you're looking to try climbing for the first time, need a belay partner, or looking to plan climbing trips, you've come to the right place. If you’re interested in helping organize climbing or social events, we're always looking to grow the team.

Remember to climb safe, climb smart and have fun!
