Our climbing areas are under more pressure than ever before, they are at a breaking point. We know you’ve seen it too: eroding approach trails and beat-down, barren cliff bases; protruding tree roots that were never meant to see the light of day. Our climbing areas are being loved to death, and land managers are noticing. We’re on the cusp of widespread closures and restricted access if we don't act now. The fight for America's public lands—home to 60% of climbing areas in this country—also continues, and we must stay vigilant in our efforts to protect these amazing places. Your support in this fight continues to be crucial, and we want to assure you that we have not let up one bit.
We're up against some big challenges ahead—both politically and environmentally. Now is the time to act, to help Access Fund tackle these challenges Black Diamond and a group of anonymous donors are matching all donations, memberships, and renewals to Access Fund—up to $75,000—between Dec 2nd - 15th. By making a donation now you’ll be providing x2 the amount of funds to help us restore climbing areas across the U.S.
Act now and help protect the areas we love, donate here.
The Access Fund is the national advocacy organization that keeps U.S. climbing areas open and conserves the climbing environment.
