WHAT WE DO

The Squamish Access Society is dedicated to working on behalf of climbers to protect public access to the climbing areas of the greater Squamish region, to engage as responsible stewards of the climbing environment and to advocate for access to quality self-propelled recreation. We work together with other access groups in “on the ground” initiatives and in engaging with local and provincial government and the private sector on behalf of climbers. Our work encompasses all the major climbing disciplines.
