New Trip Report!

Read about Robert’s perspective on their first Never Stop Moving outing at Elwha River on the Olympic Peninsula.

This was my first official trip with NSM, and my second visit to Waka Beach and The Elwhall - two lovely, but dusty, sandstone crags out near Port Angeles, WA.  While I present as male and am never offended when my identity is assumed to match, I identify as pangender and prefer they/them/their pronouns. For me, being pangender is a reflection of my feeling like a woman, a man, somewhere between, or both binary genders at the same time.  While I fully acknowledge that my presentation has certainly steered me around a lot of common female experiences - positive and negative - I can honestly say that neither my presentation nor my life’s story held back the other women on this NSM trip from welcoming and supporting me!

I never felt out of place.

Testimonials


When I first moved to Seattle, I found Never Stop Moving and I have never looked back! I am so grateful to Megan and crew for being such a welcoming group, where I could train with other women who were also looking to improve their climbing while having a good time. The drills and training plan added order and organization to my climbing, helping me overcome plateaus and advance to the next level. Also, I love all the climbing trips that Megan organizes - from Vantage to Mazama and all the way up to Squamish, I feel like I’ve been able to experience so much of the beauty of the PNW and put all my climbing skills to use :) I highly recommend checking out Never Stop Moving !
— Claire
NSM is an amazing and supportive community! Whether you are training, learning or gathering for an outdoor adventure the vibe is always upbeat, approachable and positive. I’ve really enjoyed the atmosphere and the opportunity to share with so many other women that love to climb.
— Katy
A great opportunity for women to get outdoors and climb in a community setting! Very organized and fun training and the outdoor trips are educational and supportive! Megan does a wonderful job of keeping everyone included as well as gives you that extra supportive push you need :) Love this group and the friendships I have made through it ♥
— Catherine
Never Stop Moving (NSM) is a welcoming group and has been awesome for encouraging and motivating me to become a better climber. The training can be grueling but the results pay off week [after] week. The highlight of it all is climbing outdoors and pushing yourself even further to greater heights!
— Sandy
I’m so happy I found Never Stop Moving! Not only have I become a better climber, but I’ve met great people and climbed in places I had never been before. Megan is a fantastic trip leader - her trips are well-organized and I’ve always felt very safe. If you’re looking to learn new climbing skills, get stronger, or meet new people, I would highly recommend checking out the training club and courses.
— Stefanie
NSM is my favorite! I found the group just after moving to Seattle last year and have made some great friends and climbing partners through the group :) I randomly signed up to go on a climbing trip to Mazama with the NSM group and didn’t know anyone at the time, but instantly felt welcomed and comfortable. I have since been on other trips and they’ve all been a great experience! Megan is extremely knowledgable about all things climbing and creates a safe and organized way to go on climbing trips with other rad people. I’ve made some great friends through the group and have since hung out and gone climbing with some of the ladies outside of NSM events.
— Adrienne
I’ve really enjoyed being a part of Never Stop Moving. In the few short months of being a member, I’ve met a lot of amazing climbers and climbed outside. Everyone is super supportive and there are several opportunities to learn new skills to grow as a climber. I highly recommend this club to anyone who is interested in going beyond the climbing gym!
— Denise
This summer, NSM has helped me check off milestone climbing goals! Last spring, I set a personal goal of leading my first climb by fall. I knew my climbing skills were strong enough, but I didn’t have the mindset. These girls helped me gain the confidence needed to feel comfortable on the wall. On my first trip with NSM, we drove out to Mazama. The whole trip was a blast. I met a wonderful group of ladies, decided to try scary things, and was introduced to a new type of outdoor climbing.
— Alex
When I moved to Seattle, my goal was to improve my climbing and start climbing outside. I have achieved both with NSM and I feel much more confident climbing with a group of such positive, patient, and supportive women. I’m really happy I found out about NSM and I’m really looking forward to continuing to learn and climb together.
— Erica
NSM has been awesome for me in a lot of ways. First, I don’t think I’d have the opportunity to go on outdoor trips without this group. It’s also so great how supportive everyone is of each other. And I feel like I’ve made some really good friends too. And I’ve gotten way stronger and better at climbing!

LLC vs. Non-Profit.png

Non-Profit or LLC?

Never Stop Moving was initially formed and is currently a Limited Liability Company (LLC) to separate liabilities between the owner, volunteers and members due to the activities taking part. The Never Stop Moving community continues to grow and we realize what potential we have to make a change in people’s lives. We recognize our mission is more in line with a non-profit organization. Therefore, starting in January 2020, we will be moving forward to change the Never Stop Moving, LLC to an official 501c3 organization. We feel this will allow NSM to have more opportunity to grow in the right direction. Please be patient with us as we navigate these changes.

If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to email info@neverstopmoving.org.
