May8 ClimbForGrampians

Today is the day people! ClimbForGrampians. All the listed climbing businesses in Victoria and South Australia have come together to help raise funds and awareness around the access work happening for the Grampians. Get on down to one of the gyms or buy yourself something nice. Today is also the official launch date of the ACCESS IS NO ACCIDENT – CliffCare Education Project. This is not just about the Grampians. This is about what we need to do as a user group for sustainable climbing into the future in the Grampians or wherever else we may climb. CliffCare would like to extend a huge thanks to all who have been involved in organizing this and the accompanying education campaign launch of posters and workshops and to all the climbers taking part

ACCESS IS NO ACCIDENT. Developed by Tracey Skinner (@CliffCare), Simon Madden & Ross Taylor (@verticallifemag), Florence Seow & Indie Ladan (@northsideboulders), the campaign highlights actions that you can take to minimise your impact as a climber on the environment and help protect your access to crags. Along with the poster launch there will be workshop sessions at a number of gyms on crag etiquette. The workshops have been developed by Florence Seow, they are free and run by volunteers.

For every person who climbs at one of the participating gyms listed below, $5 will be donated to CliffCare.

New Sponsor -theCrag

I would like to welcome theCrag onboard as a new sponsor of CliffCare. The guys are donating 10% of their own sponsorship revenue towards CliffCare and as time goes on, other climbing causes. As I’m sure many of you are aware theCrag is the world’s largest collaborative climbing database – and for them…most of this is done out of love not money!  Aaah….close to my heart is that!

While we’re on the subject of Sponsors, take the opportunity to check out our Supporters and Sponsors page.  All of them help in some way be it through the Raffle sponsorship or donations.  And if you are wanting to donate some funds directly to CliffCare , please seriously consider this.  The longevity of CliffCare and therefore, the longevity of access advocacy and education depends on this. You can donate a one off amount regularly every year or you can also have donations credited directly from your salary. See here for how to do it.
