We are long time climbers and advocates. Individually, we have all been doing work on our own or in small groups for many years. It took a global pandemic to afford us the time to bring our passions together.
We created EPAC as a means of pooling our resources so that Eastern Pennsylvania could have a united voice and shared energy. We have laid the foundation. We are excited to grow this organization with the help of the climbing community.
Access. It is a word often found in the world of climbing. For many folks it means gaining or maintaining access to a climbing area. However, access has come to mean something far greater – While climbing areas may be open, they are not equally accessible to all.
The founding members are committed to making our organization diverse both in its leadership and in the community we build. We are striving for representation of all types of climbers and all types of people. We are mindful that we are not there yet. We are looking for individuals to help EPAC get there.
Thank you to all who joined us!
