The Western Massachusetts Climbers’ Coalition (WMCC) is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer climbers’ organization that works to build inclusive relationships with diverse advocacy groups, state and local governments, landowners, and conservation groups to keep climbing areas open and accessible to climbers from all backgrounds, and to conserve the climbing environment in Western Massachusetts.
As we focus our efforts on new opportunities, you can help us reach our goals by checking out an upcoming event or just donating today! Becoming a member of the WMCC strengthens the local climbing community and puts us to work protecting our climbing resources.
