Preserve The Pinnacle Boulders!

The Pinnacle Boulders in the Southern Adirondacks of New York are Access Fund’s latest acquisition! We are excited to announce that this roadside cluster of quality gneiss boulders will be conserved for future generations to enjoy. The Pinnacle Boulders offer Adirondack climbers easy access and a long season of bouldering. Thanks to the generosity of private landowners Ellen Wood and her family, the boulders are on their way towards permanent protection.
