All climbers have dreams. Let us help you live yours.


In partnership with the American Alpine Club, The Live Your Dream grant powered by The North Face, is designed for you—no matter your age, ability level, or climbing discipline. Dream big with your friends, apply, and the AAC might just fund your next adventure. This year, more than $50,000 is available for climbers who want to take their skills to the next level."

The purpose of the Live Your Dream grant is to support and promote unforgettable experiences for climbers—specifically, experiences that provide the skills and confidence to realize one's climbing ambitions; to dream big, to grow as a climber, and to inspire others. The grant seeks to fund individuals or an individual of a small team of all ages and experience levels, as well as a range of climbing disciplines (including but not limited to: bouldering, sport & trad climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, ski mountaineering, peak running, exploration—you name it). We encourage you to grab a friend or three, dream big, and send us an application. Here are ten tips for winning a grant (http://inclined.americanalpineclub.org/2014/04/ten-tips-for-winning-a-live-your-dream-grant/).
