I wear my Access Fund T-shirt(~the real AF~not Abercrombie and Fitch). I’ll tell you how Shelf Road*, Castleton Tower, Indian Creek, Unaweep canyon, etc. have DIRECTLY benefited from the Access Fund. Truth be told, my membership dues ran out about 6 months ago.
Yes, I was 1 of about 190,000 dedicated US climbers that did not support the AF. This is the only national organization advocating for us daily. I just paid my dues ($37 dollars, or a dime a day). Don’t wait another day. Join or Renew today.
Here’s a couple (1, 2) interesting articles on the past, present, and future of the Access Fund.
*To all those that climb at the Shelf Road (bi)annual trip- Much of Shelf (Cactus Cliff) would be closed or not have legal access if the Access Fund wasn’t around. Think about all your good times there. You owe them. Join Now.
