With a narrow window of opportunity, the Access Fund temporarily purchased the Holy Boulders to save this incredible area from indefinite closure under new ownership in 2012. Now we need your help to raise $185,000 to secure permanent ownership of Holy Boulders and transfer it to a long-term owner that will keep it open to climbing access for future generations. We owe a big thanks to the Conservation Alliance for their significant support of $40,000!
