The Southeastern Climbers Coalition was founded in 1993 when a group of climbers banded together to help with ongoing access issues at Sunset Rock, atop Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The group had positive results from the start and went on to sponsor cleanups and trail days at climbing areas. In 2001, when the boulders at Boat Rock were being destroyed to make way for a housing development, the SCC raised $100,000 to purchase what they could of the remaining boulders and preserve them. As of 2013, we now own and manage 6 climbing areas in Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia, and lease 2 others. We also own a parking lot for access to the Deep Creek climbing area in Tennessee.

Our mission is to preserve climbing areas for future generations to enjoy. To that end, the SCC works hand in hand with the Access Fund, the Trust for Public Land, and The National Park Service.

The SCC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible. The SCC's federal tax identification number is 62-1548337. Click here to see a copy of our 501(c)(3) Articles of Incorporation.

Without all of the donations we receive as well as the many, many volunteers that attend our events, keeping climbing areas open for future generations would be impossible. Any and all donations are accepted, but we set the SCC basic donation at a level of twenty-five dollars. With your donation, you will get our newsletters, which contain updates on current projects that your donation(s) have made possible.

Sustaining Donations, annual donations, and lifetime donations will make you an SCC member.

Certain shops, climbing gyms and other businesses partner with the SCC to offer discounts and other benefits to our Active Members. Visit seclimbers.org/benefits to see a list of participating businesses and what they offer.
