The Access Fund

The Access Fund is a not-for-profit Rock Climbing advocacy group in the US. Their goals are twofold. First, keeping climbing areas open and gaining access to currently closed climbing areas. Second, they promote an ethic of responsible climbing and conservation of the climbing environment. The Access Fund was established in 1989 by the American Alpine Club as the climbing community realized the need for an organization to represent climbing and climbers rights in the US. The organization is based out of Boulder, Colorado and has a small full-time staff. However, the Access Fund has a nationwide network of volunteers that work locally to promote the Access Fund and to keep climbing areas open and preserved for future climbers.
