The Texas Climbers Coalition (TCC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that advocates for access and helps maintain climbing areas in Texas. Through the legacy of Central Texas Mountaineers (CTM), TCC was formed to encompass all of Texas and is an affiliate of the Access Fund, a national advocacy organization. 

Being an official 501(c)3 gives TCC lots of possibilities other than being a club such as: the ability to raise money on the behalf of the community, maintain annual memberships to garner more national support, bring in support from the rest of our Texas family and not just Central Texas, and acquire land suitable for rock climbing activities.

We hope to grow both our membership and our work throughout the state with everyone’s support.
