Education

With more and more people discovering the joy of climbing outdoors - our community has the potential to be a powerful force for environmental preservation and stewardship through easy, small behaviours that reduce our footprint and that of other park users.

The ethos of best practice for environmental impact can be distilled down to the following:

To leave an area in either the same or a better state to how we found it.

This means having a strong knowledge and awareness of the subjects below, and leading by example. Everyone has the capacity to be a part of the solution. Think global, act local.
