NRAC, Climbing 4 Change, and Appalachian Mountain Guides Launch Diversity in Guiding Grant

Late this morning, the New River Alliance of Climbers (NRAC) announced its partnership with Climbing for Change and the Appalachian Mountain Guides Association in creating the Diversity in Guiding Grant. The board of directors unanimously approved the funding for the project towards the end of 2020, making it a reality in 2021.  

“It is our sincerest hope that this will help put BIPOC climbers into positions of leadership in our climbing community,” NRAC stated on their website. 

The grant will cover the travel costs, a portion of required gear, and all of the necessary American Medical Group Association membership fees for two recipients. Also included are two slots in Appalachian Mountain Guides’s Single Pitch Instructor course and test. The course will be held at one of our favorite climbing and adventure areas and the newest National Park
