In 1902 the country's leading mountain climbers and naturalists banded together to form the American Alpine Club. Still today the AAC stands as the country's leading nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the climbing way of life. The AAC publishes the definitive annual record of the world's most significant climbs, the American Alpine Journal, and operates the Western Hemisphere's largest mountaineering library and museum dedicated to alpine exploration.
The Alpine Conservation Partnership builds on a long line of significant AAC conservation efforts, including the work of former club leaders John Muir and David Brower.
To serve the climbing community, the AAC runs the Grand Teton Climbers' Ranch, offers more grants to fund climbing expeditions than any other U.S. organization, provides rescue services, stages events and plays a worldwide advocacy role.
