What we're about

Texas Rock Climbing is a group of friends from all over Texas that get together to go climbing. Several different Texas Rock Climbing mailing lists and Meetup Groups have been combined here to provide one central place for Texas Rock Climbers to get plugged into the community.

We welcome EVERYONE and have events for aspiring climbers, beginners, sport, trad, and multi-pitch climbers.

Most of the time we climb at crags in Texas but we often organize trips to other states and countries.

We hope to continue to centralize and strengthen the many small regional climbing groups and create a central location where climbers can find climbing partners, gatherings and trips.

We help with the replacement of old climbing hardware to ensure the safety of Texas climbing.

We are active in opening new climbing areas and maintaining the ones that we have.

Join us on Meetup here to see what's coming up!
