An Open Source Resource For Rock Climbers

Inspired by Wikipedia and OpenStreetMap, we're building an open source & open license rock climbing catalog.


Climbing data — the building block of knowledge

In climbing we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. We want to ensure the knowledge of these great experiences remains irrevocably accessible to everyone. Content (excluding photos) is available under the Creative Commons Public Domain license.


How can you get involved?

All contributions are welcome. You can share climbing photos, add new routes, write a guest article on our blog, help fix a bug, and more. Check out the GitHub issues.

Still not sure how to get started? Chat with other volunteers on Discord.

Why we need your donations

OpenBeta is not backed by venture capitalists, nor is it supported by ads. Fortunately, there is a small and active group of volunteers donating their time and expertise to keep the project running and develop it further.

For the project to survive and continue to evolve, we need your financial support and ask for your donation today. All money donated will go directly to fund OpenBeta infrastructure.

You can become a sustaining member for as little as $3/month.

Donate today!

OpenBeta is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit collective. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
