About the Competition

Climb Mount Rox 

What is it? At Memphis Rox, we believe in the collective power of communities uniting to uplift one another. Throughout the four years of our existence, we have been climbing many mountains, seeking to diversify the sport of climbing and increase accessibility to climbing and the outdoors. To amplify these efforts, we have our eyes set on another mountain, Mount Rox. We are calling on the climbing community to help us reach the summit at 38,106 feet – to climb higher together. Within this climbing challenge, every boulder problem that you climb will count as one foot and we are aiming to climb all 38,106 ft (or 38,106 routes). The Climb Mount Rox registration launches November 1 with the competition starting November 15. Join us as we prove that we climb higher when we climb together. 

And trust us, the irony is not lost on us, sitting only 338 feet above sea level, the city of Memphis is flat. Hey, we can dream of climbing outdoor routes though, right?? 

Why 38,106 routes? 

Rox is proudly situated in the 38106 zip code, working in unison with neighbors to uplift our community. 

Why should I participate? 

  1. Climbing is rad
  2. Supporting diversity and equity work in climbing is even radder
  3. Rox needs your support to continue serving with the community 
  4. Rad prizes from Black Diamond
