Beyond the Guidebook: The Definitive Climbing Resource

Mountain Project: A Free, Crowd-Sourced Guide to Climbing the World

Crags and routes are submitted to Mountain Project by users around the world. The data is managed and organized by Regional Admins, all of whom volunteer their time, skill, and knowledge for the benefit of all climbers. The site is operated by one of its original founders, Nick Wilder.

The Backstory

On a sunny day in January 2000, Myke Komarnitsky dreamed up a new web site while climbing in Eldorado Canyon. That night, he began and started documenting local climbs. The idea spread to a dozen different websites across the US including Joshua Tree, Moab, Red Rock, & more.

In 2005, two longtime climbing buddies Andy Laakmann and Nick Wilder built Mountain Project and imported the data from the old sites with Myke's help as he moved on to grad school. Mountain Project was built to take climbing beta beyond the guidebook, and become the definitive climbing resource for climbers across the globe.

In 2015, REI acquired Mountain Project to solidify the future of this amazing resource for the climbing community. Every line of code was redone from ground zero and traffic skyrocketed. In 2020, REI returned Mountain Project to its founders.

In 2020, onX Maps, a pioneer in outdoor digital navigation, aquired of Adventure Projects, Inc.
