Our sport is growing rapidly. Climbers are arriving at crags across the country in ever-increasing numbers. While this is great in many ways, it also puts a strain on the fragile environment in which we test ourselves. Our friends at the Access Fund have laid out this list of practices to minimize impact, protect our crags, and ensure they stay open to climbing for years to come. The Climbing staff has signed the pact to maintain these principles, and we urge you to do the same.
