Open Access for NH Climbers = No Lawsuits

No need to get lawyerly about open access. NH landowners that open up their property to climbing are now protected from getting sued if someone gets injured on their property.
Local climbers rallied to submit letters and make phone calls to their Senators, asking them to amend the bill to include technical climbing before passing it. 
And today it was signed into law by Governor John Lynch. “This is an important piece of legislation for climbers,” says Eisele. “With landowners protected from liability if someone is injured while climbing on their property, it makes it much more likely that a landowner would consider public access to climbing.”
