It’s what we do.

 Climbing makes us tick. We dream, obsess, sweat, bleed, fail, and triumph through climbing.  We are dedicated, prideful folks, grateful for climbing and always eager to share our passion for the sport. Why? Because it’s an infinite source of what life is fundamentally about: Connecting.


It’s why we climb.

We climb to connect because connections are essential to life. Every time we lace-up, we climb to connect and harmonize with our minds, bodies, friends, and the natural world. These connections can be subtle or overwhelming but all of them are powerful and transforming.


It’s who we are.

Community is the sum of the connections we make. We strengthen and grow our community through experiencing the common thread of climbing. Ultimately, Whetstone’s vision is to share the wealth of the climbing experience which changes lives, for good.
