The Access Fund is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to keeping climbing areas open and to conserving the climbing environment. Preserving the opportunity to climb and the diversity of the climbing experiences are fundamental to the mission of the Access Fund. Working in cooperation with climbers, other recreational users, public land managers, and private land owners, the Access Fund promotes responsible use and sound management of climbing resources throughout the United States. The Access Fund encourages an ethic of personal responsibility, self-regulation, strong conservation values and minimum impact practices among climbers.
