The proceeds of this guidebook go back into local climbing and crag maintenance. The Municipality of Leonidio has committed to using all profits from the sale of this guidebook to fund further development and crag/route maintenance. Importantly, this ensures that the local authorities will have an ongoing stream of revenue to use for climbing—a low-impact form of tourism which has already added immense value to Leonidio.
