Protect Public Lands

Nearly 60% of our climbing areas are located on federally managed public lands, and a growing movement of law and policy makers at the federal and state levels have launched a systematic attack on these lands.

Our Approach

The best way to influence how our public climbing areas are managed is to have a seat at the table. Access Fund represents the collective voice and interests of climbers—working to protect access to, and integrity of, our climbing areas by working with officials in Washington, DC and land managers at parks and forests across the country.
