About HC

Homo Climbtastic hosts the world’s largest queer-friendly climbing convention, annually in Fayetteville, West Virginia.

By queer, that includes bisexuals, lesbians, ambisexuals, gays, trans’es, questioners, not quite straight people, amphibians with crushes on cephalopods, or however you define yourself.  You don’t even have to be queer.  You can be straight as a motha-fuckin arrow.  Maybe you’re just tired of climbing with brahs.  “Hey brah!”  “Hey!”  “I’m workin’ this problem, and I know I’ll get it next time, after I do some hand exercises.”  “Yeah brah?”  “Yeah.”  If we’re straight-friendly enough for Chris Sierzant, we’re straight-friendly enough for you.  (Warning: this is not an endorsement from, or endorsement of, Chris Sierzant.)

HC members climb everything from moderate to hella badass and talk about really perverse things and eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  So, if you enjoy leading while quoting SNL, amnesia inducing vaginal orgasms, and frank discussions about the possible merits of using Nutella as lube, then join us!  And if you’re not quite ready for that yet, then put yourself on a steady training schedule of climbing and John Waters films.  We’ll wait!

To see what we’re up to, click the Join link up top.  If you’ve never climbed before or have only top roped, you’ll need to learn a few more tricks before you can join the fun.  We can hook you up with some instruction, particularly if you live close to any of the HC leaders or a local LGBT climbing club.

If you want to write to us, check out the contact us page for contact information.

If you want more info about what kind of people are in our club, see the FAQ.

One thought on “About HC

  1. Finally. I was wondering when or if this type of organization would ever be started. It’s a breath of fresh air in a climbing world that has more than a little homophobia. As a straight male climber, I may not relate entirely, but I certainly like seeing the climbing community open up like this. Cheers and happy climbing!
