Action Alert Helps Preserve Access to Darrington Climbing Area, Washington

Last month the Washington Climbers Coalition and the Access Fund issued an Action Alert on the impending closure of the road providing access into the Darrington climbing area. Thanks in part to the swift and timely response from climbers in the form of calls and letters, the Forest Service will be doing repairs to the Clear Creek road, and access will be maintained for the near future.

The Access Fund helped make this access victory occur with its Action Alert in the April E-News #54: "You can tell your friends to stop calling us now; we're going to have a contractor start repairs on the road next week," said the USFS Roadway Supervisor of Clear Creek Road. The success epitomizes climbing activism. Thanks to all of you that responded to the alert!
