Climbers' Access Society of British Columbia
The Access Society represents everyone who supports public access to the cliffs and mountains of B.C., and conservation of them. It was founded in 1995. We encourage anyone who supports our goals, particularly all climbers and mountaineers, to become involved, and support our work.

Saturday May 25th from 9am to 1pm. The majority of work is to remove fallen trees on the approach trail and to build some proper stairs at the top of the trail. Bring work gloves. There will be free swag for those attending.
"...was climbing at the Gully area of Area 44 today and there is an active Ravens nest adjacent to Climb Warp and Sweet Transendite which I found while climbing Rocky Horror. The Ravens were actively defending their nest and were pretty agitated by climbers presence. A voluntary closure of the area between the Gully area from the "Marbles" climbs to Sideshow should be respected in this area for the foreseeable future."
This crag is popular with people who are new to/learning the sport. Please pass this information along to those who climb in the area but may not be aware of these types of access-related issues.
CASBC members are invited to the MEC Club Night on April 30th at 7pm. Vancouver store. You must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to attend.
"BC Parks and a volunteer group of climbers have developed the below strategy to manage rock climbing in Stawamus Chief, Shannon Falls and Murrin Provincial Parks. The strategy will be used to direct management activities related to rock climbing in the three parks. It must be stressed that this strategy is site specific and will not be applicable to the situations found in many other provincial parks."
Our last newsletter was sent out Feb 27th, 2012. You can download it here.
