Color The Crag

Founded and hosted by Bethany Lebewitz and Mikhail Martin,
of Brown Girls Climb (BGC) and Brothers of Climbing (BOC) respectively.

“The Color the Crag Climbing Festival is an event to celebrate diversity in the sport of rock climbing. Our mission is to build community, promote leadership from people of color (POC), provide a positive narrative of underrepresented communities in the outdoors through inclusive and educational climbing festivals and events. Our hope is that, by gathering our many communities of color together, we can address the barriers to experiencing climbing. By hosting an event to promote diversity, we will directly support and connect climbers of color.”

In its 3rd year, we expect for Chicago to bring out even more climbers to Color The Crag happening October 17-20 at Horse Pens 40 in Steele, Alabama. It’s an amazing festival and we cannot wait for you to experience it for yourself. We hope to be a useful resource as y’all plan your trip and GET STOKED!
