regional coordinators


Regional Coordinators (RCs) are volunteers who serve as a point of contact and support for local access issues. These individuals are liaisons to local areas, representing climbers' interests on both public and private lands. They facilitate efforts to keep climbing areas open. The dedicated volunteers who serve as regional coordinators are committed to providing climbers with solutions that will preserve America's diverse climbing resources for future generations. When access issues arise in your area, if there is not a local climbing organization, reach out to your RC.

For general information, please call Zachary Lesch-Huie, Affiliate Director, at 303.545.6772 or via email at zachary@accessfund.org.
