Did you know that the WMCC is run ENTIRELY by volunteers?

If you’re interested in volunteering at a trail day, running an event, or providing a specialized skill, the best place to start is to fill out our volunteer form. We will connect interested volunteers with WMCC members and/or opportunities so you can join in on the fun. We may also reach out to let you know of opportunities with other local climbing organizations.

Additionally, if you have any ideas for an event that you would like to lead for WMCC, please contact us!

Other ways to help WMCC

Consider some of the following:

  • Donate/Become a Member – Donating is one of the biggest ways you can have an impact. WMCC relies on donations and grants to be able to accomplish the work we do. Some examples of how your donations have an impact is in maintaining the Farley (and soon Hanging Mountain) parking lot, trail maintenance, and helping to paying off our Access Fund loan for Hanging Mountain. Donate today or become a member
  • Parking – When you climb at a WMCC crag please make sure you are following all parking directions found on each crag’s page. When coming as a group, please carpool whenever possible to reduce the number of cars at each parking lot. The rules ensure that we are respecting the community around our crags. Not following parking guidelines has the potential to cause access issues.
