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.
- 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
The group has also climbed with the greater Queer Climber’s Network that connects with groups all over the country. Interested? Follow the group on Instagram for more information + updates.
