Meet the woman behind “Cartoon Connie” - Connie herself: artist, writer, climber. She tells us about the lessons she’s taken from climbing into her work and how she made the big leap from stable career into being her own boss.
Our longtime staff member Kaitlin tells the story of her return to climbing after an accident last fall to Alice of Yenu, a new hub for climbers that celebrates the diversity of climbing voices and lifestyles.
Our mission is not just to introduce kids to climbing, but to welcome them into our space + our community for the long-term. Once kids enter ClimbUp at school age, we aim to keep them around—as youth team climbers, summer campers, and in many cases, as Cliffs staff members!—and see them through to college.
