The Yosemite Climbing Museum and Gallery in Mariposa, California is an invaluable asset to the global climbing community. The space provides the unique forum for displaying and curating historical climbing artifacts as well as photography, publications, and memorabilia: collectively, our community's art. Yosemite local, Ken Yager realized there was a need for preserving climbing history decades ago; the Mariposa space demonstrates his commitment to filling that need.
Since the YCA first started working on the space in 2019, we've arranged gallery walls of photography, which showcases Yosemite climbing history through the lens of prolific artists. These walls are lined with display cases which feature impressive artifacts and hardware, showing the evolution of climbing and gear over time. We also have interest from the outdoor industry's top art producers for future exhibits.
