FINAL September Membership Sale

$10 donations for every membership sold!

This year will be our final September Membership Sale and will operate a little different than years past. This year, you have the option to buy a prepaid 6-month membership or sign up for a Month-to-Month membership with a discounted initiation fee. Your prepaid membership will be good for 6 months and will enable you to bridge to our annual One-Hour Membership Sale, held on the last Sunday of February. We are also partnering with local non-profit organizations to give back this September. For every membership sold, we will be donating $10 to non-profit organizations that have a positive impact on our climbing communities. Please read more about our partnering organizations below!
