The Access Fund is still the current owner of Golden Cliffs, and is actively working to clean up the property title before transferring the 29 acres to the County sometime this spring.
In 2013, the Access Fund began investigating the possibility of transferring Golden Cliffs to Jefferson County Open Space, which has a long history of collaborative, climbing-friendly management of dozens of other crags along the Colorado Front Range.
Climbers should be assured that climbing access at Golden Cliffs will not be affected by this transfer. The Access Fund has guaranteed that climbing access will not be affected unless a natural disaster or wildlife protection issues temporarily restrict public access.
Stay tuned for an announcement of the transfer to the County, as well as an upcoming celebration at Golden Cliffs to commemorate the legacy of Mayford Peery, who donated the cliffs to the Access Fund in 1994. The event will celebrate 20 years of Access Fund ownership and officially present Golden Cliffs to Jefferson County Open Space.
