Help us provide assistance to missing climbers abroad and their families at home.


Climbing For Beare is a non-profit search, rescue, and recovery organization focused on aiding mountaineers from the United States that have gone missing while climbing one of the many beautiful international peaks all across the world, while also providing assistance to their families at home.

Project 1

Currently suspended: the Recovery Phase of the Search for Steven.  We raised 100,000 in donations to complete an extremely thorough exhaustive search of Mount Elbrus, Russia in September 2017 after the snow had melted.  The Rescue Phase was conducted from June 18 through June 30, 2017. 

All of our search, rescue and recovery efforts are funded solely by donations and private fundraising events.  All donations are tax deductible and 100% of our donations go directly to helping our climbers and their families during times of distress.  In the future we will be looking into Grants as well.


Do you have a family member or close friend that you believe has gone missing while attempting to climb a mountain internationally?  Please contact us directly so that we may be of assistance to you in starting your search and rescue, or continuing on to recovering your loved one.
