We're on a mission to rally climbers to protect the places they love.

Today, 1 in 5 climbing areas in the United States is threatened by an access issue—whether it's private land lost to development, public land managers over-regulating climbing, or climber impacts degrading the environment, the list of threats is long and constantly evolving.

By becoming an Access Fund member you'll join over 20,000 advocates who fuel Access Fund's critical work to:

  • Keep climbing areas open to the public
  • Buy threatened climbing areas and put them in climber-friendly hands
  • Replace aging and unsafe bolts
  • Improve our climbing areas with better trails, toilet facilities, and less graffiti and litter
  • Work with lawmakers and policy makers to ensure climber-friendly regulations

The threats to climbing come in many forms, and Access Fund is poised and ready act. We buy threatened climbing areas, protect climbing on public lands, replace bad bolts, empower local climbing advocates, build sustainable climbing areas, and educate climbers on outdoor ethics.
