About OpenBeta

We are a proud nonprofit initiative that enables new and innovative uses of data about rock climbing routes. Just as the Access Fund fights on behalf of climbers to keep public lands open to climbing, OpenBeta is dedicated to providing free and open access to rock climbing data for computer programming, research, and data science endeavors.

We are a collective under the Open Collective Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization.
