The motivation for starting Beta Climbing was built on the foundation to help be a voice for rock climbers. As many of you know, our planet is at a tipping point. We are in an unprecedented time when considering the health of our planet. For that reason, Beta Climbing is dedicated to supporting non-profits that help reverse the impact on climate change.
It was extremely difficult to decide which non-profits to support. In the end, we decided to support the American Alpine Club and One Tree Planted.
The American Alpine Club
The American Alpine Club is an amazing organization looking to protect rock climbing lands, maintain, and to educate rock climbing safety. Even better, they help lobby to protect our public lands! Their founding principles were easy to resonate with. I’ve always had a passion to protect our planet and treat it with the utmost respect. To learn more about the American Alpine Club, click here.
One Tree Planted
One Tree Planted was selected for its global impact. Approximately, there is 412 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere and rising! Dishearteningly, this increase of CO2 over the last 10 years is anywhere between 100-200 times greater than what is understood to be normal. Trees are a great resource to help remove CO2 for the atmosphere and when you combine that with increasing biodiversity, reducing the likely-hood of flooding, health benefits, and having a positive social impact, planting trees has a massive benefit for humanity.

By purchasing a bag of chalk from us, will we donate 100% of the profits on your behalf to these two organizations. Help support and maintain a beautiful outdoor rock climbing experience, while helping to heal our planet.
As a rock climber, you are already buying chalk. Why not buy chalk that gives back to the community in which you already belong to?
