The Access Fund is the national advocacy organization that keeps climbing areas open and conserves the climbing environment. Founded in 1991, the Access Fund supports and represents millions of climbers nationwide in all forms of climbing: rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, and bouldering. Six core programs support the mission on national and local levels: climbing policy and advocacy, stewardship and conservation, local support and mobilization, land acquisition and protection, risk management and landowner support, and education. The Access Fund has supported 58 land acquisitions by land trusts, public entities, and local climbing organizations, totaling 16,251 acres across twenty-seven states. The Access Fund is an accredited land trust.
