Have you ever been distracted by any number of political policies that can directly affect you? Come climb with us twice a month and find a supportive and inclusive community for like minded folks. Our goal is to bring climbers of color together and build a safe space while promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion!

About Our Organizer:

Natalie grew up in a suburb of Los Angeles, found her way to San Francisco and has been living in Santa Cruz for two years. She found climbing in 2012 and was immediately hooked. She has been climbing on and off since then but always finds a way back during the fall. Depending on the day, her favorite types of climbing include bouldering, sport climbing, and long mellow sport multi-pitches. Her passions outside of climbing include, Raptors (like the birds), running, back-packing, reading, caring for her plants and doggo named Monty. Natalie has a great love for community and thrives to bring inclusivity into any space she is in. Nat believes that representation matters and wants to see more diversity, more perspectives, and more conversations about our histories and those of the ancestral lands we work, inhabit, and play on.

Natalie would love to hear from you! Any questions, comments, and concerns?
