The Access Fund recently announced the first round in their Climbing Preservation Grants Program and two New England projects have received funding.
The Clifton Climbers Alliance received a grant to support their efforts to save climbing at Eagle Bluff, popular sport climbing and bouldering area in Clifton, Maine. The area was closed to climbing in 2013 and put up for sale. The grant is going towards the purchase of the land.
The Western Mass Climber's Coalition received a grant to improve the parking lot at Farley. The Access Fund was instrumental in the purchase of the land in 2007.
