What We Do:
We organize and host events that bring the community together and take care of our outdoor climbing areas. We establish and maintain positive relationships with the land managers that oversee our outdoor climbing areas. We replace bad bolts and promote positive outdoor ethics. We partner with organizations including the Access Fund, Touchstone Climbing, Planet Granite, Patagonia, Sports Basement, Mountain Hardwear, REEL ROCK, and more, to bring together the entire Bay Area community of climbers.

Who We Are:
Some of us are in pursuit of tough and long lines deep in the backcountry. Others pursue the acute challenges of bouldering with refined technique. Some are newer to outdoor climbing, dabbling now and then, and others push their limits in the steep world of sport climbing. Our individual climbing experiences span the spectrum, from the newly devoted to the life-long veteran. What we all share is love of the sport and the community. We are passionate about giving back and protecting the areas where we climb. We are Team BACC.
