As climbers, we enjoy the opportunity to climb on both public and private lands in Washington. With access comes a responsibility to take care of the places where we climb. Thoughtful behavior at the crags and formal stewardship projects demonstrate that "we care."

The Washington Climbers Coalition has been undertaking stewardship projects since 2005.

Here are some of the projects we've worked on.
