About the AAC
Founded in 1902, the American Alpine Club (AAC) is committed to serving the climbing community. Throughout the years, we’ve listened to climbers’ needs and created resources and solutions so our entire community can thrive. That’s why we offer grants, our unique rescue benefit and medical expense coverage, and memorialize and archive climbing history in North America’s largest climbing library and the American Alpine Journal. We bring together climbers from all over the country with our events, campgrounds, and volunteer network. We’re breaking down barriers to climbing and resourcing climbers who have lost loved ones to this often dangerous sport. Daily, we work to protect and advocate for our climbing landscapes and public lands nationally and locally. And we’re educating climbers with our robust accident analysis in Accidents in North American Climbing. United We Climb.
