Climb the Gap

Climb the Gap is a collective of climbers based in the land of the Tongva people, now known as Los Angeles, that aims to support current and future climbers of color. Their mission is to cultivate a more diverse and equitable climbing community.

They envision a world where people in climbing and nature are reflective of the communities we come from.


They want to ensure that the next generation of climbers, across all backgrounds, are given ample access to outdoor opportunities, while learning the importance of respect for nature - so that future generations may enjoy this sport for years to come.
