This website is intended for any land manager, owner, or planner who manages rock climbing. At the end of the 2010 National Climbing Management Summit hosted by the Access Fund, participants discussed ways to continue the dialog, share best practices and stay in touch. To that end, this site contains sample documents, contact information of experts across the country, existing planning documents, research and other valuable resources related to the management of rock climbing. It also contains the presentations from the 2010 and 2007 National Climbing Management Summits.

The site is a collaboration between the Access Fund, BLM, NPS and the USFS. Hopefully we will add a university to this list soon.
