Chalk your hands and get ready to climb on up with a new local rock climbing group.

Meet Chattanooga Queer Climbers, a group that welcomes all from the LGBTQIA+ community with the intention of “fostering a supportive, encouraging, and inclusive space for folks to climb together.” As of now, the group mainly meets on Mondays at High Point Riverside (1007 Appling St.) — but location is subject to change.

Memberships are required for entry to High Point, but if you want to try out the climbing gym before committing to a membership, day passes are available for purchase for ~$22.

Upcoming meet-ups:

  • Monday, March 20 | High Point Riverside | 7:30 p.m.
  • Monday, April 10 | Wauhatchie boulders | Tentatively 5 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 15 | Denny Cove | Tentatively 12 p.m. Note: This climb is in collaboration with Unharnessed Pride Climbing
