Get Involved, Stay In Touch, and Support Mid Atlantic Climbing 

There are lots of ways to support Mid Atlantic Climbers and help protect and conserve our region’s climbing resources.

Join Mid Atlantic Climbers and the Access fund

MAC has joined forces with the Access Fund to offer a joint membership that simultaneously supports DC area climbers and climbing access as well as the Access Fund with one membership. A joint membership means you receive benefits from both organizations, and support national efforts and the crags in your own backyard.

Click here to sign up for a joint MAC/Access Fund Membership.

***Be sure to click the box for “I would like to become a Joint Member” and select “MD-Mid Atlantic Climbers” in the drop down menu. 

Members receive a special bi-monthly members only newsletter and a special invitation to a MAC annual members party.


We also consider anyone who participates in an adopt-a-crag, makes a donation, or keeps in touch with us through our outreach channels a Mid Atlantic Climber. Here are some other ways you can become a part of MAC’s efforts.

Volunteer at our Adopt-A-Crags

MAC wouldn’t exist without the support of our volunteers. MAC runs several Adopt-A-Crags each fall and a Rockfest service day/climbing festival in the spring, and they typically focus on trail maintenance, invasive species removal, and whatever else the park needs. Adopt-A-Crags not only conserve the climbing environment but also help build positive relationships with land managers. For more information about our adopt a crags, visit our events page or click here to register. 

Join Our Mailing List 

We have an email mailing list that keeps climbers informed about what MAC is up to and if there are any access issues local climbers need to be aware of. We try to keep emails to a minimum, and you can always unsubscribe. Facebook is also a great way to stay in touch with us and get updates on events and announcements.

Make a Donation

We’ll be honest. We’re a small, non-profit. We receive fantastic support from our stakeholders, and earn a little bit of money from our joint membership program, but we always appreciate any size donation. For more information on making a donation, contact our Finance Director Tori at


Stay in Touch When You Encounter Access Issues

 We understand if volunteering or donating aren’t for you. One really important thing you can do is make sure you understand local access issues, and reach out if you see a crag that needs some love or could use our help. If you have any questions about access, or encounter an issue you’d like MAC’s help with, email
