GVC’s Vision

Gunnison Valley Climbers’ aim is to be recognized as an organization that takes ownership of stewarding our local climbing resources while also adhering to the ethics established by the area’s pioneers. The vision we see for the future is one that keeps our areas safe with updated, modern hardware, sustainable trails, and keeping a healthy relationship with local land managers. In addition to caring for our local resources GVC aims to be a part of the larger conversation surrounding public lands advocacy and to be a leader in the conservation movement. GVC supports keeping public lands in public hands, increasing awareness around diversity and inclusion in the outdoors, and simply encouraging more individuals to experience climbing in a safe and responsible manner.
