Climber.Org helps people find each other, but doesn't sponsor trips.

Neither Climber.Org nor the person(s) listed as contacts for the trips below are in charge of your safety or responsible for your choices and actions.

These trips are listed because we think you might be interested, not because Climber.Org endorses them or thinks they are safe or fun or good for you.

A signed Liability Waiver might help, and shared Climbing Expectations are a good idea, but in the end simply taking responsibility for your own actions is the right thing to do.

We don't really know if the groups listed here sponsored the trips shown, or if a trip with no listed sponsor is private, so don't take our word for it.

Anyone seeking partners can list their own 'private trips' and enter their contact information on the Who's Who at Climber.Org page.
