I was afraid to talk to the rangers but the WCC encouraged me to do so and now the rangers are working with me!
Gabriel Cisneros, WCC
The Clear Creek Road remains open because of advocacy and volunteer maintenance done by climbers. The WCC’s recent concrete repair to a hardened stream crossing came out really well. Thanks WCC!
Martha Rasmussen, Friends for Public Use
WCC is GREAT. I love working with the WCC and helping protect the crags that matter to me. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I see a direct impact of my contributions.

Climbers have worked hard to help take care of Frenchman Coulee. Their raising of funds for a permanent toilet and their trailwork has really helped WDFW maintain this busy recreation area.
