“Access Fund does more good for climbing than anyone else. And climbing does more good for me personally than just about anything else,” says Mountain Project’s Founder, Nick Wilder. “I couldn’t be happier to see the Mountain Project community rally behind the Access Fund and exceed our ambitious goal."

“Access Fund is actively pursuing several potential climbing area acquisitions and expanding our policy shop to better support local issues,” says Executive Director Brady Robinson. “This funding will help these efforts immensely.”

Thanks to Mountain Project and all of the Access Fund members and donors who participated in this match campaign.
