Welcome to the Bay Area Climbers Coalition

COVID-19 Status Update:

BACC and our partners are cancelling all upcoming events in light of the COVID 19 pandemic. We’ll do our best to reschedule as soon as we are confident we are able to host an event that is safe and fun for all participants. We’re grateful for our energetic community of volunteers and appreciate your understanding during this time. 

Lastly, even if you’re young and feeling healthy, now is not the time to go on a climbing trip. Please be conscious of your impact and the stealth spread of this virus, and respect the gateway communities and our crags in the Bay Area and beyond by staying home

Thank you and be well.

The City of Berkeley Health Officer has ordered residents to shelter in place through April 7, leaving only to receive or provide essential services, which does not include climbing.

Climbing and bouldering areas are closed

All recreation facilities are closed, including sports fields, play structures, basketball courts, tennis courts, and volleyball courts. Open space in large parks remains open for community members to enjoy alone. Stay 6 feet away from other people when you are out please.

Stay home, stay safe, and train. Look to your local gyms for virtual classes and tips on how to keep training.

The Bay Area Climbers Coalition (BACC) is a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to preserve access to local outdoor areas through stewardship, community building, and educational programming.

Our objective is bring together individuals and organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area interested in protecting and caring for our local climbing resources, including:

  • Land managers from city, county, state, and national parks
  • Non-profit partners such as the Access Fund, American Alpine Club, and regional climbing and mountaineering clubs
  • Local businesses, including climbing gyms and outdoor retail stores
  • Outdoor brands with a local presence, from widely-recognized international labels to local boutique companies
  • And, most importantly, climbers!

We do this through collaboration with land managers and partner organizations, volunteer stewardship events at our local crags, and social and educational events all over the Bay Area.
