Thanks to a continued strong partnership between the CCC and the staff at Table Rock State Park, the climbing season there is being extended! The season will now run from August 15th to February 1st, a significant increase from the previous season of September 1st to December 31st and adding in the important and prime month of January! Many thanks to our partners at the park for making this happen and to CCC board member Tom Caldwell for his continued great work!

Every 15-20 years, National Forests undergo a planning process. Thanks to recent changes in the way these are conducted, the opportunity for public involvement is greater than it has ever been. Nantahala nad Pisgah are currently entering the public comment period of this phase of the process. The plan is in development and they are looking for input and previewing some of the current thinking on the plan.
