Over $30,000 Raised to Protect Sandstone for Midwest Climbers!

The Minnesota Climbers Association (MCA) and Access Fund are excited to announce that the bouldering area in Sandstone, MN has been acquired for climbing access. Almost 10 years ago the MCA worked with private landowners to gain access to the high-quality bouldering area. This past year, the MCA got word that the landowners were looking to sell the property, putting public access at imminent risk. The landowners generously agreed to give local climbers the first opportunity to purchase the land.

With support from MCA and Access Fund, the Parks & Trails Council of Minnesota (PTCM) purchased the property and will hold it for 2-3 years before integrating it into Banning State Park. Local climbers helped to fundraise for the acquisition costs and future improvements, exceeding the fundraising goal with $31,132! Thanks to the community of dedicated climbers and donors who helped make this project a success!
