Climbing Advocacy Conference 2022

Every year, Access Fund brings together luminaries from the climbing advocacy community to lead workshops, sit on panels, and conduct field visit in an educational, inclusive, and laid-back learning environment. Join us for a weekend of learning, sharing, and fellowship during which climbers from across the country will share with each other the emerging knowledge and strategies gleaned from the past year of protecting America's climbing.
