On September 13, join Petra Cliffs and the Outdoor Gear Exchange for the first ever (official) LBGTQ+ Climbing Night! Come climb & boulder, learn to belay, or work on your project in a safe, low stress, pressure free environment. Pre-register for a super deal!
Fall is the best time in the Northeast for outdoor climbing! Conditions are ideal right now to try your first outdoor climb, learn how to place traditional gear, or perhaps to practice rescue skills for those "what if" scenarios while climbing with friends.
Olivia Hunt has one of the longest tenures at Petra Cliffs-- and she's only 19! From starting out on a very small climbing team at age 8 to taking on work as a coach and camp leader- check out a bit about Olivia!
We're excited to have Tim Farr as our Staff Highlight for July! The man, the myth, and on his way to legendary status-- his name will go down in guidebooks for first ascents around Smuggs and Bolton, and we learn a little more about Tim's roots in his interview. Read on!
Our members make Petra Cliffs such a special place to be. If you’ve spent any time in the gym recently, you’ve probably seen Alex Wright hanging around. He’s checked in to the gym more than anyone else in 2019, so we figured we should get to know him a little better. Without further adieu, here’s Alex!
Kicking off our new Staff Spotlight series is Cate Beebe! Here's a bit about her, what she does for Petra Cliffs, and what she's excited about. Come on in and give her a high five and ask about her crazy cat!
You've seen them here a few times a week for as long as you can remember, and we want to give a spotlight on a couple of our favorite climbers in our community! Congrats to Susy and Serge Lazarev... you two ROCK!
