If you’re a climber who wants to keep your climbing areas open and conserve the climbing environment (and why wouldn’t you be?) you should know about the Access Fund.
The 1.6 million-member Access Fund supports and represents climbers nationwide in all forms of climbing: rock, ice, mountaineering, and bouldering. To help preserve and protect climbing areas and promote responsible climbing, Trailspace recently became an Access Fund partner. You may have already noticed the Access Fund banners in the Trailspace climbing forum and climbing gear reviews.
The Access Fund works through public policy, stewardship and conservation, grassroots activism, climber education, and land acquisition to support climbing access and conservation at the national and local levels. If you're a climber the Access Fund has your interests at heart.
Want to help preserve and protect your favorite climbing areas? Become an Access Fund member, adopt a crag, get involved with your local climbing organization, or start one of your own.
