As a climbing community, we bear a responsibility for protecting our climbing resources. The AAC is stepping up to play a more active role in issues that affect climbers on the national, state and local levels.
Climbing is a natural act, like walking, and should be allowed on public lands. The AAC supports the freedom for climbers to climb in any style they choose, as long as it does not unduly affect others. While we support the freedom to employ any style, climbing with a partner provides improved safety in a number of ways.
