What Does It Mean To Be a Climber?

Let’s make climbers the group that’s known for inclusiveness and support. Let’s enable each other to make a positive impact. Let’s focus on what we’re for. Instead of being “anti,” let’s be “pro.” At Trango we’re all for personal growth, reward and achievement. We’re all for stewardship, responsible development, and access. Whatever discipline(s) you love, and whatever grade you climb, we’re all for you.

If you’re psyched on this concept, participate! We've created this site as a sounding board to celebrate climbers who pursue their craft with passion, contribute to the community, and embody what it means to Be A Climber. And most importantly, we’ve made it to inspire you to pursue, encourage, and do in your own community. 

Get Involved!

Do you know someone who is a positive force in your own climbing community? Tell us about them! This month, we’re accepting nominations for climbers who exemplify the Be a Climber ethos. We’ll select three lucky nominees as winners and they will receive a prize package and be featured on this site.

Know someone who fits the bill? nominate them below!

Jason Haas

A full-time job and family of four have not slowed down Jason Haas' passion for climbing. On any given weekend, you'll find him waging war on new projects, test pieces, and first ascents throughout Colorado's Front Range. Pre-work dawn patrol and Tuesday evening garage bouldering sessions bookend days spent at work and hours publishing climbing's newest guidebooks. That alone merits respect from aspiring crushers, but he doesn't stop there. While balancing a busy work, family, and climbing schedule, Jason takes time out to pour into the community that has given him so much through extensive rebolting initiatives. Jason works with several local climbing organizations to direct the bolting and rebolting of many Colorado crags.

Erica Lineberry

Erica Lineberry inspires other families to integrate their passions into their daily lives through her vibrant blog community. In Erica's case, this means raising adventurous kids who don’t remember their first time climbing, camping, hiking, etc. They don't remember it because to them being outdoors enjoying nature is something their family has always done. It’s part of who they are. On any given weekend, you can find Erica and her family at the crag playing, working projects, and exploring the crags of the southeast. On weekdays, she shares her outdoor experiences on her blog at cragmama.com.

You Can Be a Climber Too

This isn’t just about community activism; it’s about inclusiveness and support. It’s about building others up. Your relationships and interactions with others are the biggest opportunity you have to Be A Climber. You don’t have to love bouldering. You don’t have to love trad climbing. You don’t have to climb 5.13. But when you’re in your element you can still cheer on others who are in their own element. Ultimately we’re not pursuing a grade, or a bad-ass badge, or a speed record. We’re pursuing a life that is filled with reward, friendships, and depth of experience. And when you zoom out a bit, you realize we really do all have the same goal, and it’s one worth supporting.
