Become a financial supporter

theCrag is the world’s largest rock climbing and bouldering platform. We provide information about 513,800 routes, 18,800 topos and thousands of climbing areas. The climbing community is entering and maintaining that information for the climbing community. It is accessible for free by everyone! The community of climbers should own information about climbing areas and not individuals.

But, developing, maintaining and enhancing a global platform does not come for free. The team of theCrag works hard to keep its operation lean and tight. We fulfill our mission but we also depend on YOU to not only support us by providing information but also funds.

Please consider becoming a financial supporter, small or big, one off or monthly. Any amount you select will help us making theCrag even better than it is and keeping it free for you. Thank you!
