The Access Fund-Jeep Conservation Team recently headed north and paid a visit to Rumney, New Hampshire, one of the country’s premiere sport climbing destinations. Over the first two days, Eddie and Claire worked alongside the Rumney Climbers Association (RCA) and a dedicated group of more than 40 volunteers to cut a new access trail between Orange Crush and the Main Wall, construct three rock staircases, paint four information kiosks, and re-roof the first aid station. After the weekend, the Conservation Team stuck around and worked with US Forest Service representatives to harden some staging areas in heavily impacted areas. The Access Fund and the Conservation Team would like to thank all the volunteers, the RCA, and the USFS for a successful weekend.
