Who We Are


To protect access to climbing in Southern Nevada by encouraging responsible stewardship and community involvement among local climbers.


​The Southern Nevada Climber’s Coalition (SNCC) is a grassroots affiliate of the Access Fund. We advocate for rock climbers in Southern Nevada by promoting responsible stewardship of local resources and cultivating greater community awareness and involvement.

The SNCC provides an avenue for constructive dialogue between climbers and local land managers, as well as a resource for local and visiting climbers seeking information about the world-class climbing destinations in Southern Nevada.

Funding for SNCC projects comes primarily from members and partnering organizations such the Access Fund, American Alpine Club (AAC) and the American Safe Climbing Association (ASCA). We are fortunate enough to have support from organizations like the American Alpine Institute (AAI), American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) and many local businesses.
