olyclimber posted a topic in Access IssuesLIBERTY BELL NEEDS CLIMBERS' SUPPORT The Liberty Bell Group, a cluster of five granite spires at Washington Pass outside Mazama, is home to some of the most popular and iconic alpine climbing in Washington State, including classic Fred Beckey first ascents like the Beckey Route on Liberty Bell and the West Face of North Early Winter Spire. Over the last decade, the area has become increasingly popular among alpine climbers. This rapidly expanding use has led to deteriorating trail conditions, severe erosion, and unsafe approaches. The Liberty Bell Conservation Initiative will address these critical issues, and we are shovel-ready. But the project needs $100,000 to cover two seasons of professional trail crews and supplies to address critical stewardship and conservation needs. To kickstart the project, The Mountaineers have donated $10,000, the Washington Climbers Coalition shared $4,000 (awarded from the AAC Cornerstone Grant Program), and the Petzl Foundation has kicked in $6,000 to bring us closer to our goal.
