The Preserve Receives Low-Impact Climbing Grants

Significant increases in climbing in recent years have necessitated extra steps for the preservation of climbing areas to avoid environmental damage. With support from the American Alpine Club Cornerstone Conservation Grant and the Waterman Fund Grant, the Preserve is scaling up conservation with low-impact climbing. Through new signage and programming, we are explaining and encouraging the use of low-impact climbing practices, such as our new anchor stations and access routes. Collaborating with the climbing community, we continue to explore new ways to recreate responsibly and deepen our relationship with nature.
