Regional Coordinators

Regional Coordinators are volunteer advocates that represent Access Fund and local climbers in areas where there is no established local climbing organization. These volunteers play an essential role in advocating for their climbing areas and working to establish new local organizations. The Regional Coordinator role has existed since the Access Fund’s grassroots beginnings, and the dedicated volunteers in this role have been the front line of defense for access issues in their area. Many Regional Coordinators have planted the seeds that have grown into strong, nationally recognized local climbing organizations.

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