What we're about

Climbing is a social activity and is meant to be enjoyed within the company of others. Along these lines, this meetup is a great way to meet new people. No experience necessary. All skill levels welcome.

We meet twice week at Austin Bouldering Project, which is the largest indoor climbing gym in the United States. We also do outdoor excursions regularly, but our “official” events take place indoors because it's a lot simpler from a logistical perspective. After each session we sometimes also grab food and drinks at the nearby Friends and Allies Brewing Pub or Eastciders.

This meetup is a collaborative, fun and chill environment where people can get to know each other and help each other grow as climbers. If you have been climbing for several years, great, come on in. If not, that's fine too. We are more than willing to show beginners the ropes.

Whether you're a beginner looking to try something new, or an experienced climber looking for climbing buddies to help push you to the next level, hello and welcome!

This is one of our weekly climbing events. We meet up, we climb, we help and cheer each other on, and head to impromptu dinner.

We're a friendly bunch; if you're new to climbing, we'll gladly show you the basics. The goal is to support each other and become better climbers — and most importantly, to have fun!

WAITLISTED? While we don't turn anyone away, as a matter of courtesy you should message one of the organizers to make sure they can accommodate you.

Beginner-Friendly Climbing at Greenbelt (Seismic)

This is a great event for people who are looking to get into outdoor rope climbing. We're going to climb at Seismic from 6pm until it gets dark, then head to a nearby pub for drinks and food.

Attendees will need their climbing shoes, harness, chalk bag and HELMET. For liability reasons, we cannot allow people without helmets. Even if you are experienced, you must wear one while climbing or belaying.

The organizer will make sure there are enough ropes for each climbing pair.
