Our goal is to restore climbing access to the largest limestone escarpment in the Northeast US and to work with conservation groups to preserve the integrity of the Helderberg Escarpment which is an important highland area and watershed for Albany County. This formation of limestone has almost 6 miles of cliff and is centrally located in the Northeast US. See our mission statement here.

See the History of climbing at Thacher here.
