WCCC now offers joint membership with Access Fund!

Now when you renew or join the Access Fund, you have the option of adding a joint membership with Western Colorado Climbers' Coalition. This means you have an option to support WCCC by  adding $15 for each joint membership. We are pleased to offer this to our supporters.

From now until December 15, Access Fund has a few more days for Black Diamond and a group of anonymous donors to match all funds coming in. We're hoping you will support WCCC through the joint membership program during this campaign.

Thanks for the help on National Public Lands Day--September 22

A dozen volunteers assisted with work associated with two grants we received from the Access Fund and REI-Grand Junction. Pillars were set for a new bridge over the trail at the Sunday Wall trailhead in Unaweep Canyon, and new signage was posted at Mothers Buttress trailhead and Sunday Wall. In addition, a new trail was cut to reroute the approach trail to the new bridge.  Thanks, everyone, for helping out!

Guide Services and Institutions

The following guide services and educational institutions are authorized to use the Unaweep cliffs owned by Western Colorado Climbers' Coalition. These organizations are insured and have official permission to guide on our lands, and we urge folks seeking a guide to support these entities. Please report violations; unauthorized guiding puts us all at risk and is not fair to the guides who have been diligent in securing legal access. WCCC thanks them for their ongoing support of the Western Colorado Climbers' Coalition. If you feel your organization has been left off this list inadvertently, or to report violations, please contact evetallman [at] gmail.

WCCC Under Contract for TV Wall parcel

WCCC is under contract to sell the parcel located at the base of the Sunday Wall trailhead. We'll keep you updated. We're very excited to close on the sale and pay off our loan to the Access Fund. As you may be aware, WCCC purchased properties that include major climbing venues; over the past several years, we have subdivided the cliffs to "keep" while ensuring free and open access to our favorite Unaweep cliffs. Our intention has been to sell the buildable parcels on the highway frontage in an effort to retire our debt to the Access Fund.  We appreciate the patience of the AF through this slow and arduous process.
Help WCCC raise funds to cover closing costs and maintain our tax-exempt status for the property's management.  Click on the "donate now" button on the left side of this website!  Thanks, Eve
