Minnesota Climbers Association


The Minnesota Climbers Association is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization made up of members and volunteers dedicated to preserving Minnesota climbing. We advocate access for climbers by encouraging responsible practices, promoting conservation and stewardship of private and publicly held lands, as well as, fostering communication and awareness of the sport to the public.
  • We host Adopt-A-Crag events to keep Minnesota crags clean for climbers and other users.

  • In partnership with land managers, we work to protect and expand access in Minnesota.

  • MCA Volunteers and the City of Sandstone work together to provide a “farmed” ice climbing destination for winter climbers from the Midwest and beyond.

  • Our bolting fund supports the ongoing work of volunteers who maintain and keep routes safe.
