One in five natural climbing areas in the United States is threatened by an access issue. Each natural area is unique, requiring policy makers and land/resource managers to exercise broad discretion in managing recreational activities.
The Access Fund is the national advocacy organization that keeps U.S. climbing areas open and conserves the climbing environment. Founded in 1991, the Access Fund supports and represents over 2.3 million climbers nationwide in all forms of climbing: rock, ice, mountaineering, and bouldering.
