Mountain Goat Climbing is a group of climbers changing their community

Everyone who climbs at Mountain Goat Climbing is a part of something much bigger than just rock climbing. Mountain Goat exists to provide free adventures and mentoring for at-risk youth all over South Carolina – in fact, we’re the only 501c3 non-profit climbing gym in the entire country. Every dollar we bring in provides these opportunities and all of the money paid by the public keeps the doors open and the lights on so that even more kids get a chance to enjoy climbing.

Join a Community

Mountain Goat Climbing is a community of incredible people. Climbing is also an effective and fun form of exercise. Come try it – we bet you’ll like it if you give it a chance. Never been before? We’ll teach you everything you need to know

Give Back

Every dollar spent at Mountain Goat provides free climbing, outdoor trips and mentoring for at-risk kids all over South Carolina. When you climb here, you’re part of that.

Provide Jobs

The at-risk kids in our mentoring program are also trained for jobs. Our goal is to introduce at-risk students to free climbing through our mentoring program and have them earn jobs in our gym.
