It started with a climber, a dog, and a van.
On a perpetual climbing road trip around North America, a dirtbag climber visited several at-risk youth programs and was shocked by the lack of resources they had. Following a four-month-long trip of speaking and collecting donations at climbing gyms to help these programs, the “Move Mountains Tour” drove $10,000 in used gear to support Escalando Fronteras in Monterrey, Mexico.
In 2018, Climbing Without Borders was born.
CBW works with climbing gyms, gear brands and rock climbers around the country to bring gear, funding, and other resources to the youth and communities in the Americas that truly need help.
cwb has the mission to:
empower at-risk youth through climbing
help youth climbing programs
engage youth in protecting their climbing areas
