Climbers make great friends!
That’s why we’ve put together a list of groups and organizations we work with, to help connect you with the climbing community in and around Calgary. Be sure to ask us about them next time you visit any of our locations.
Also important to note is that you don’t need a partner to boulder in our gyms. It is common for people to come alone. Busier times will lead to more climbing partners.
We’ve been working with the Calgary Climbing Meetup group since 2008, and over the years we’ve been able to connect hundreds of climbers in Calgary.
If you’re looking for a climbing partner, regardless of your skill level, we highly recommend checking out the the Calgary Climbing Meetup group, it’s FREE. Click on their logo below for more info:

MEC is a Canadian institution, with locations across the country. Their Calgary store (830 10 Ave SW) started out from modest beginnings atop a record shop, and is now a “vertiable palace of outdoor gear”. Aside from offering a huge selection of indoor and outdoor gear, the MEC staff are well connected with the Calgary Climbing Centre and the community.
