Membership benefits


MAA is unique 

We combine welcoming, long-term friendship with quality climbing events and training to achieve an engaging member experience that is personal, professional and inspiring. 

We're a network of mountain lovers and adventurers who climb, train, and play hard together, and we'd love for you be a part of our community.


CLIMBING

MAA hosts climbing events of all types, offered by season year round, ranging from an evening to an extended weekend. All events are led by rock certified climbing professionals or experienced volunteer leaders and are free for Base and Apex membership levels. 

    • Free rock climbing, ice climbing, snow climbing, mountaineering, skiing, scrambling, backpacking and indoor climbing events.
    • Expedition teams train and prepare for months in advance of tackling a significant peak together.
    • We track member proficiencies and use a screening process to ensure you climb with well-qualified, thoughtfully selected partners.
    • Private rock outings are available May - November at Donner Summit.


CONNECTIONS

MAA members get together for climbing, training, online video calls and social events, and we gather in expedition teams across the globe. We welcome people who are new to climbing as well as those who are much more experienced. We are a community that knows our members well and enables their climbing aspirations in the long term, not just for a weekend. Along the way we build friendships, push each other to excel and make memories that last a lifetime. Many of us have found our best climbing partners and friends through our association. We'd be honored to have you join our community!
