To support our shared passion for climbing and respect for the places we climb.

How do AAC Regions, Sections, and Chapters work?

The AAC is organized into 25 sections across the country. Many of the sections have established chapters to better serve specific communities. To drill down and find the community that is right for you, we've grouped sections and chapters into six regions that cover the entire US.

Sections and Chapters work separately and collectively to connect climbers by organizing social events, planning climbing outings, funding local grants, gathering for service projects at their local climbing areas, and providing education to new and experienced climbers.
