Welcome

The Carver Climbing Club facilitates access to the private property that the Carver climbing areas are on. To climb at the Carver cliff or the Carver boulders you must be a member of the Carver Climbing Club and adhere to all the rules.

All climbers must have their state ID and a Carver Climbing Club member card at all times while climbing on the property surrounding the Carver Bridge Cliff and Stone Cliff Inn.

Membership is open to experienced climbers 18 years or older. It is the members that help maintain access privileges by respecting the landowners and Stone Cliff Inn customers, adhering to the Carver Rules, and policing the area for climbers that have not filled out a waiver. Help us protect this local resource by becoming a member today.

The Carver Climbing Club has been cooperating with the Rosenbaum family—owners of the Carver Bridge Cliff and surrounding boulders—since 1991. Our mission is to collect written releases from climbers, limit vandalism and littering on the property, and ensure that climbing activities do not infringe upon the privacy of the Rosenbaum family in their house on top of the cliff.

Important COVID-19 Update

As you may know, our partner gyms have closed for business in an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Since the gyms handle all waiver collection and membership card distribution, this means we will not be able to issue any new or replacement cards until the gyms reopen for business. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience, but these are unprecedented times and we appreciate our partner gyms’ efforts to do their part for public health.

The Stone Cliff Inn on the Carver property is also closed for all dine-in business, but remains open for take-out. If you plan on climbing at Carver during the closure, we encourage you to consider giving the restaurant some business. Mike Rosenbaum (the property owner) has been incredibly generous over the years in allowing us to climb in his front yard.

On that note, we also remind all climbers to be particularly careful in the coming weeks, both with social distancing (among the boulders and up at the cliff) and safe climbing practices.

We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we get through this challenging time.

Please refer to the gym websites for further updates about business operations.

Thanks everyone and take care out there.

Carver Trail Work Party was a great success!

On Saturday, July 22, 2017 we had a trail work party at Carver. While we didn't get quite the turnout we'd anticipated (only about one third of those who registered actually showed up!), it was definitely a case of quality over quantity!

We had a LOT of material delivered to the worksite, and only about 5 hours to get the job done. Volunteers (all Club members) really busted their butts to make it happen. We made a number of repairs to the main trail system, both in the bouldering area and at the base of the cliff. We also spread a bunch of bark around below some of the more popular boulders. Thanks everyone for all the hard work! We finished off with food and drinks on the patio down at the Stone Cliff Inn.

If you missed this trail work party, no problem; we'll do it again!
