COMMITMENT & RESPONSIBILITY
WHY WE CARE
Climbing puts us in touch with Nature in a way few other pursuits ever could.
Approach-walks, contact with the rock, expansive summit views, the gradual and difficult nature of upward progress; all contribute to an increased awareness and appreciation of the environment in which we climb.
Acopa will continue to undertake and support efforts to minimize the negative impact climbing has on the environment, such as Yosemite Facelift and other local clean-up events.
As climbers, we also look out for each other and help each other as much as possible.
That’s why Acopa also supports and will continue to support initiatives to increase awareness, safety and inclusiveness in climbing, such as Outdoor Outreach and Climb Smart.
