Our Mission 

The Western Massachusetts Climbers' Coalition (WMCC) is a neighborhood 501(c)(3) non-benefit volunteer climbers' association that attempts to construct durable associations with backing gatherings, state and nearby governments, landowners, and preservation gatherings to continue climbing regions open and moderate the climbing condition in Western Massachusetts.

Our Purpose

The WMCC constructs grass courses bolster for climbers concerns and advances the common assets of Western Massachusetts for outside diversion through ecological stewardship and training.

The WMCC perceives that the different sorts of climbing (i.e. customary, brandish, and bouldering) are all legitimate. The WMCC does not try to advance one kind of moving over another, yet rather endeavors to save the interesting character of climbing that has created inside each of the climbing regions in Western Massachusetts.

Executive Summary

The striking and fluctuated climbing assets situated all through Western Massachusetts have pulled in climbers since the mid 1950's. These assets speak to a portion of the finest climbing openings in Massachusetts and New England; however private property and land proprietorship issues make a significant number of these regions subject to conclusion because of expanded utilize. As the prevalence of recreational climbing quickly expands, the effects felt via landowners and the earth are winding up noticeably more obvious. Building up a strong working relationship and comprehension between climbers, landowners, state and neighborhood organizations, and other related gatherings will start to determine current clashes and help to safeguard future climbing assets. Ensured open space, for example, state woodlands and trail systems like the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail, adjoin some of these climbing regions and would show new opportunites fo rhikers, feathered creature watchers, bikers, skiers, and other outside lovers. The's WMCC will likely guarantee capable climbing access to climbing ranges and secure these significant conditions through training and expanding climber mindfulness.
