On a sunny day in January 2000, Myke Komarnitsky dreamed up a new web site while climbing in Eldorado Canyon. That night, he began building ClimbingBoulder.com and started documenting front range climbs. With the help of others, the idea spread to a dozen areas across the US, including Joshua Tree, Moab, Red Rock, & more.

Mountain Project is the second generation combination of those climbing sites. It was founded in 2005 by two longtime climbing buddies, Andy Laakmann and Nick Wilder. Mountain Project aims to take climbing beta beyond the guidebook, and become the definitive climbing resource for climbers across the globe.

In 2015, REI invested in Mountain Project to solidify the future of this amazing resource for the climbing community.
