What we're about

Welcome to the Phoenix Rock climbing Meet-up! This group is for people who have a passion for textured surfaces, chalk, and getting to the top. It is not a competitive, teaching, or guiding group but is a place for camaraderie, encouragement, and meeting new people, regardless of experience.

We would like to have more events but need organizers to support that. If you are willing to host an outing please send a message to the organizers of this meetup.  Choose your own location or step in to lead one of our regular spots. Outings do not have to be limited to rock climbing.  We will try to have at least one official meetup every month and may try different gyms around the valley. No experience or gear is necessary for indoor climbing.  

Disclaimer: While generally climbing is a very safe sport ,it can be potentially deadly. This meetup group does not give training. You are responsible for your own safety. All of valley climbing gyms offer inexpensive classes in basic safety and skills.
