What is Member Share?

Member Share is a network of AAC members who have opted in to share resources or meet up to climb. It’s a completely optional and great way to meet people in your local climbing community or around the country. Features include:

• Find a climbing partner
• Find a couch to sleep on during your next climbing trip
• Search local discounts on gyms, guide services, and gear shops
• Embed your Mountain Project ticklist

What’s new for Member Share 2.0?

• More ways to search for like-minded climbing partners (by age, grade level, type of climbing and hiking preferences, affiliations, and more)
• Easier than ever to find local discounts on guide services, gyms, and gear near you
• Search results are way faster
• Personalize your own bio
• More privacy settings available
• Search results now map you by city and state rather than home address
