With that in mind, they also incorporate these core values when they make various decisions, when they interact and communicate with their customers and the community living around them.
History of Chiang Mai Rock Climbing Adventures
In November of the year 2001, CMRCA was simply a small organization of local climbers who lived in Chiang Mai, where the founder (Josh) and co-founder (Francis) were still developing and actively bolting, while their managing director (and now founder, Kat) had been working her way to become a professional and successful climber, as well as part of the Thai National Team. They saw all the potential that they had and for their home to develop and establish an active and strong Chiang Mai rock climbing community that consisted of foreign and of course, Thai climbers. Because of this desire to organize a rock climbing Thailand organization, on October of 2002, they finally opened CMRCA right after Kat had successfully won the Thailand National Championship; because of all the positive things that have been happening then, they officially had the company registered on the 16th of December of the same year and from then, began their journey to promote Chiang Mai rock climbing.
At first, they were just a little team that consisted of Kat, Josh, Muad, Sorn and their first accountant, Pi Noi; they started their rock climbing Chiang Mai adventures with just the standard top rope, multi-pitched courses, lead, and always climbed whenever possible. Eventually, CMRCA actively developed Crazy Horse which brought more people in the property which soon had the area grow fast from just forty-five to over a hundred routes by now. Later in January of 2003, the beloved dogs of the team, Diamond and Black joined the crew, but things did not continue to go smoothly at some point after.
A new addition to their family, Pui and Taw joined them on March of 2004 and from then, their family continued to get bigger; furthermore, to make things even better for rock climbing Thailand, they created a climbing wall that was specifically created as the base of the Chiang Mai Climbing Club. By now, it has become extremely exciting for the many Chiang Mai rock climbing enthusiasts because of the presence of numerous routes at the Crazy Horse, which the owners of the CMRCA are planning to increase in the future. Because of the many bouldering areas that have been found around Chiang Mai, their rock climbing Chiang Mai community is growing active and kicking with even more locals and tourists discovering about climbing everyday.
