Climbing Survey -

Here's a chance to win MEC gift cards and some swag from Coast Mountain Sports!!

Yukon Climbing Access Society (YCAS) has put together a survey with the help of a consultant (StrategyNorth) and contributions from local rock sages.

We are looking for your help and participation in this 10 minute survey on outdoor rock climbing.

Do you rock climb in the Yukon?  Then this survey is for you.  The information that we're gathering will help us better understand our climbing community, strengthen our community's voice, and foster relationships with local governments and landowners.

Through participating, you can enter your name to be picked for MEC gift cards & some climbing swag from Coast. Please pass this on to anyone you have climbed with in Yukon Territory. Your help is greatly appreciated.
