Aceess is in jeapordy in nearly every major climbing destination, and the continued urbanization of our wild spaces combined with a growing community means we need to be responsible stewards of this shared resource.

It has recently come to attention that there have been significant issues are local Nova Scotia climbing destinations. In 2018, flinging human feces may be occuring at your local Tim Hortons, but it's still not OK at the climbing crag.

This infographic is a long list of rules that can be simplified:
  • Use common sense.
  • Leave no trace. 
  • If you wouldn't do it on your neighbors lawn, don't do it at the crag (common courtesy).
Specifically, there has been an issue of fires - nobody wants  a bouldering bad covered in soot or broken holds from thermal expansion.
