About Our Auction

The Silent is Auction is the WMCC's biggest fundraiser of the year. Auction revenue will help protect your local crags! Your support directly benefits the places you love by paying for the porta potties at Farley and Hanging Mountain, new trail signs, kiosks, trail work, and WMCC operating costs.

Funds raised at this year's auction will also help us finish paying off the Access Fund loan for Hanging Mountain and make some much needed updates to the Farley Parking lot this spring.

About Western Massachusetts Climber's Coalition

Western Massachusetts Climbers Coalition (WMCC) is a small nonprofit fueled entirely by volunteers. The mission of the WMCC is to build inclusive relationships with diverse advocacy groups, state and local governments, landowners, and conservation groups to keep climbing areas open and accessible to climbers from all backgrounds, and to conserve the climbing environment in Western Massachusetts.

The WMCC stewards over 11 climbing areas in Western MA, including the popular sport climbing destination, Farley Ledges. In Nov. 2019, the WMCC, with the help of the Ragged Mountain Foundation and the Access Fund, purchased a cliff in Sandisfield, MA called Hanging Mountain. We also had generous support from the Appalachian Mountain Club, the Conservation Alliance, MassTrails in order to build infrastructure on phase I development of Hanging Mountain. The WMCC’s major initiatives in 2022 include working on phase II development of Hanging Mountain and working towards solutions to the Farley parking problem.
