Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion statement

We stand with providing access to climbing by promoting diversity and inclusion. We proudly provide physical access to crags with ongoing stewardship efforts and direct climbing policy work with land managers. Our climbing access and stewardship efforts are inclusive to historically unnderrepresented communities, including but not limited to: Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, adaptive climbers, women, femmes, non-binary, LGBTQIA2S+, neurodivergent, and low socio-economic status. The public and private climbing lands that we steward are open to all people regardless of race, ethnicity, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, gender identity, sex, age, national origin (ancestry), documentation status, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or veteran status. To further promote inclusion, we offer sliding scale CCC Memberships to provide equitable opportunities for climbers of all means. 

The climbing lands we serve have a rich and complex social history.  To honor and acknowledge the history of our climbing lands, we will continually share relevant Indigenous land acknowledgements and written or verbal historic accounts of these lands. To promote diversity and inclusion, we will continue to highlight diverse communities and individuals within the climbing community. We aspire to continue to build a strong, diverse, and inclusive climbing community in the Carolinas. 


In the summer of 2020, we added a JEDI board position to the CCC Board of Directors. Alma Solis is the first person to fill that position and we are lucky to have her! If interested in the CCC's JEDI work, contact Alma at asolis@carolinaclimbers.org
