Volunteer Projects

A major part of our mission is to keep our local crags accessible, safe, and looking sharp for everyone! This means repairing and maintaining trails and belay platforms and performing other types of maintenance and cleanups, projects which we couldn't do without volunteers like you!

Community Events

The PPCA partners with local businesses in the Colorado Springs area to bring you fun activities such as clinics, film nights, and food and drink specials that also benefit us.
