One of the most notable examples of CTM’s cooperation with government for the preservation of public land is the acquisition of Milton Reimer’s Ranch by Travis County in 2005. CTM rallied tremendous support for this purchase at each Travis County Council meeting to show how passionate we are about preserving this pristine land and maintaining access for rock climbing. We have also worked with Travis County officials by contributing towards their development of the master plan of the area and sponsoring trail building projects at this “new” park. Thanks to the support of CTM members, the new North Shore section of Reimer’s opened to the public in early 2012 with scores of new rock climbing routes and more in development. CTM also strenuously advocated for the 2011 Travis County purchase of a large tract of land between Reimer’s Ranch and Hamilton Pool parks that promises to further increase the rock climbing potential in the area.
