I have been an active climber throughout Montana and the western U.S. for over 30 years. In that time, I have seen the popularity of climbing increase dramatically. Even in our backwater state of Montana, new climbers and climbing areas are popping up everywhere. Unfortunately, more climbers bring more impact to the areas we use. Landowners and land managers are beginning to notice. Let's all work together to preserve access to the areas we love, if not for ourselves, but for future generations. Join SMCC today!
