BCC History, Legal Structure & Team

The BCC was founded in 2010 and is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. As the Local Climbing Organization (LCO) for the Boulder area we are closely affiliated with the American Alpine Club and the Access Fund and we have a joint membership program with the Access Fund.

In the spring of 2014 the BCC launched the Front Range Climbing Stewards (FRCS) program in partnership with the Access Fund.  At the core of the FRCS is a 3-person full-time trail crew that builds and restores  climbing access trails in climbing areas all over the front range and other areas popular to Boulder climbers.

We work closely with area land managers, including Boulder County Parks and Open Space, Eldorado Canyon State Park, Jefferson County Open Space, City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks, and the U.S. Forest Service, and we support the work of the Action Committee for Eldorado (ACE) and the Flatirons Climbing Council (FCC).

Our 15-member Board of Directors meets every other month, and meetings are open to the public (see below).

Mission Statement

The Boulder Climbing Community is a non-profit organization that connects and supports climbers, climbing organizations, land managers, and businesses in the Boulder area, in order to protect and care for the climbing areas we love.
