Paying to Climb Outdoors Follow-up

Last month I ran a poll asking people how they felt about paying to access climbing areas.  After receiving 72 votes and several comments, it is clear that the majority of people don’t like paying for climbing.  Not exactly earth shattering, I know.  I’m actually surprised that the number of people who didn’t like paying wasn’t even higher. 

 Climbers are cheap...duh

It should be interesting to see how the trend of increased fees evolves as the growing popularity of climbing is felt over the coming years.  Access initiatives like that of the PRMP at the RRG where climbers are buying land outright will probably be the only way to ensure unfettered access in the future.  With your help, I will continue to donate money to these types of access causes.
