Climber Coffee Meetups the first Tuesday of every month! Begins 10/4

Adventure Programs at Stanford is starting up a new monthly event - Climber Coffee Meetups!

Much like Yosemite, Joshua Tree, and other national parks with climbing, we are starting our own climber coffee meet ups the first Tuesday of each month from 8:00am – 10:00am in the Outdoor Center. This is a great time for folks to come together and talk climbing, trip planning, meet other climbers, and enjoy free coffee.

For the first event next Tuesday 10/4, the bay area climber coalition will st up a table to talk about any climbing updates in the bay area as it pertains to access, maintenance, and such.

This is open to anyone regardless of climbing experience.

Please reach out to Dan, Climbing Coordinator ( with questions.

2022-2023 Member Registration OPEN NOW || Practices resume Monday, October 3

2022-2023 Membership:

  • Being a SAC member gives you access to Yosemite campsites (campsites starting again in winter 2023), subsidized Common Adventure trips, IKON Pass discounts, Monday night practices at the Stanford climbing wall, gear pro-deals, member listserv, fun film screenings and socials.

  • Head to the Get Involved tab to register! Signing up is super easy for both current and prospective members who are a part of the Stanford community.

  • If you are a current SAC member, renew your membership by Friday, October 7, to ensure you stay on the roster without interruption.

Monday Night Practices:

  • Starting Monday, October 3, we are resuming practices every Monday night from 8-10pm at the AOERC climbing wall!

  • The first meeting will be held in the Outdoor Center before normal practice hours. This meeting will serve as an (re)introduction to the club and the officers, and a chance to meet new members. Only members who already have wall access/belay certification will be able to attend practice following the meeting.

  • In case you’ve forgotten what practices are… they’re a great time to unplug from life, and come climb with your fellow SAC teammates! Find a new climbing partner, get that beta you’ve been gunning for, send your gym project, plan a trip.

  • In order to rope climb, you’ll need to go through the standard belay check at the Stanford gym. Please obtain this ahead of the first practice in the gym (Monday October 3) as we will not offer belay certifications during practice. Please refer to the Stanford AOERC Climbing website to schedule a lead belay certification.
