After a busy spring and summer leading stewardship projects at crags across the east, the Access Fund-Jeep Conservation Team has crossed the Mississippi to show our western climbing areas some love. Eddie and Claire just finished a trail project at Mount Rushmore National Monument, working alongside National Monument staff and volunteers from the Blackhills Climber’s Coalition. The team then made their way to Salt Lake City for the summer Outdoor Retailer tradeshow, and is now in Washington State, where they will work with the Washington Climbers Coalition and the Wenatchee National Forest to repair and improve the descent trail off Castle Rock. The team will wrap up the month of August doing trail work at Ruth Lake and attending the Craggin’ Classic, hosted by the American Alpine Club and the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance.
