Farley Parking Lot Project and Fundraiser

The Farley parking lot is getting a facelift!! The upgrades are projected to cost $12,000 – $15,000. We are thankful for a $9,000 grant from the Ashley Arthur Williams Foundation, which will cover more than half of the cost of this project.  But we need YOUR help now more than ever to make up the difference.

Our goal is to raise $2,000 in donations by July 30th. Donate HERE.

The scope of the project:

  • regrade and repack surface of the lot
  • widen the lot, making space for an emergency vehicle to pull up to the top
  • flat accessible parking space next to trail
  • larger place for ADA accessible toilet
  • add guard rail
  • add parking spaces (number of actual spaces will only be determined after the excavator begins work)

The main lot will be closed when work is being done. Please check our Instagram account for the latest updates and plan accordingly for parking. Visit our website for more information on other options for parking.

Access and Demographics Survey

Want to help out the WMCC from the comfort of your home? Take our survey! We need as many climbers as possible to take our Access and Demographics survey so that we have data that represents the full spectrum of our climbers. It doesn’t matter where you live or how often you climb at crags in Western Mass – if you have climbed in Western Mass, we want to hear from you!

What will we do with the data from this survey? The results of this survey will inform our long term goals and strategy, will add valuable data to future grant applications, and help us compare usage over time. The survey is anonymous and will take about five minutes.

Please complete the survey by July 5th, 2022. Thank you!
