Welcome to the Journal!

Philadelphia climbers might not have the best rock climbing in the world minutes from our doorsteps, but that doesn't stop us from going on some pretty rad adventures. We built this journal hoping to provide a place for local climbers to post up trip reports, tips, and stories. We want to inspire our local community to get out and see awesome new places, and to help them make the connections they need to get there.

Each of our contributors will be available for contact. If we haven't published their personal info, and you'd like to get in touch with one of our authors, send us an email at phillychapter@americanalpineclub.org with your contact info and we'll forward it along.
