TCI is shaping the global future of rock climbing.

The Climbing Initiative is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit equipping climbing communities worldwide with the knowledge and resources to thrive. We began in 2019 as a research project at Yale University documenting the international expansion of climbing and its economic, social, and environmental effects. Today, we are developing best practices, investing in community leaders, and empowering climbing organizations to maximize this sport's potential for positive impact.

We will be collecting gear donations at BGS to support international communites lacking access. Stop by to support!
