Some climbers miss the point. Even some friends of mine make some poor decisions when it comes to “treading lightly” and respecting the privilege that rock climbing on public and private lands is.
I like this drawing on the Access Fund’s website that depicts many of the poor decisions that we, as climbers, can make. It’s a reminder to pay more attention to what you are doing when you go climbing. Be conscious of your impact. Be respectful of others. Be careful with nature. Give climbing and climbers a good rep and we’ll get to keep doing what we love.
