"We love climbing because of the challenge, the adventure and the community. That's what we hope to share with everyone that walks through our door."

Our love for climbing is in everything we do. So much, that we often spend our ‘work time’ discussing recent or future outdoor trips, admiring our heroes, and obsessing over gear. As each new climber finds their passion, ours humbly grows stronger. Climbing is more than something we do, it’s who we are.

Our team comes from a variety of backgrounds which have led us all to climbing one way or another. Our shared passion for the sport drives us to create a welcoming environment for everyone who walks through our door. We’re happy to be part of the Tennessee climbing community and we continue to be excited about our role in developing and strengthening the next generation of Southeastern climbers.

There are a variety of ways to participate in our community: Adult Bouldering League, youth programs, ladies only clinics, memberships, birthday parties and groups, corporate team building, and much, much more!
