Right now, we are up against one of the greatest threats to climbing access we have ever faced, and we need your help.
Over 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. The sheer number of bills, executive orders, resolutions, and legislative rules that push to dispose, transfer, and diminish our public lands is unprecedented.
This is a non-partisan issue--every climber and U.S. citizen has a stake in our public lands. And while the climbing community is politically diverse, our shared passion for climbing must unite us. We must work together to protect America’s public lands.
Curious who works on public land issues at the Access Fund? Meet our public lands policy team, and learn more about the experts who are working to protect climbers' interests in Washington, DC and at parks and forests around the country.
