What is the Climbers Pact?

As climbers, we have a personal stake in the health of our outdoor landscapes—without them, we have no place to climb. But as our sport continues to grow in popularity, we are loving our climbing areas to death. Join Chicks and The Access Fund in making a few minor adjustments to your climbing practice that will protect our outdoor landscapes and the climbing experience we love. Commit to the climbers pact, the future of our sport depends on it.
