Mission & Purpose

Our Mission

The Monadnock Climbers’ Association (MCA) is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer climbers' organization that works to build cohesive relationships with landowners, conservation groups, advocacy groups, and state and local governments to keep climbing areas open and conserve the climbing environment in southwest New Hampshire and surrounding areas.

Our Purpose

The MCA serves as a central voice for communicating climbers' concerns and promotes the protection of the natural resources of southwest New Hampshire for outdoor recreation through environmental stewardship and education.

The MCA recognizes that the various types of climbing (i.e. ice, rock, and mixed) are all valid. The MCA does not seek to promote one type of climbing over another. Rather, it strives to preserve the unique character of climbing that has developed within each of the climbing areas in southwest New Hampshire.
