Preserving, protecting, and expanding your climbing opportunities
Many thanks to everyone who came out in the less than ideal weather to clean up the boulders and work on the trails. We still need your help to pay off the loans.
Anthony and Zachary talk about the project, what it means, and how you can help
For those of us who call the Palmetto State home, NC tends to have our “home crags” with Crowders Mountain, Rumbling Bald and Pisgah often less than a few hours drive. Despite SC possessing its own equally impressive cliffs and boulders, many of them are off limits or at best “sensitive” due to ambiguous or unspecified rules governing their use.
As we all know climbing and especially bouldering are becoming ever more popular and bringing much needed economic support to our states’ rural areas. The time is right to seize on this momentum and advocate for SC's own resources.
To really ignite our cause, I’m calling for all fellow South Carolinians to please attend the CCC Spring Meeting Saturday, February 27th @ Lake Lure.
The Carolina Climbers' Coalition welcomes The Triangle Rock Club to our growing list of corporate sponsors. In celebration of their 2nd anniversary and in cooperation with the Kenneth Kratz Family Charitable Trust, the Triangle Rock Club has become "Lost ln Space" level Cooperate sponsor of the Carolina Climbers' Coalition, contributing $2500 to the Rumbling Bald Boulders Fund.
The CCC will be having our spring meeting on February 27th in Lake Lure, NC. This meeting is open to the general public. So please reserve the date on your calendar. Heck, bring your neighbor. This will be a great chance to send some of the classic boulder problems we now own.
As of right now a specific meeting time and place are not set. Check back here for more info soon!

Yesterday (January 6th, 2010), the CCC started the New Year off with the purchase of the West Side Boulders at Rumbling Bald. The closing of the sale occurred in Asheville, NC. This purchase marks the beginning of our newest land acquisition project. This purchase serves as the 4th pilot project of the Access Fund's Land Conservation Campaign, a national initiative to empower local climbing organizations to conserve recreation lands through a loan program to purchase them. With this new initiative, the Access Fund is demonstrating once again they are YOUR climbing future! This project marks our second major land acquisition project. Its exciting for the CCC to conserve of a major bouldering area for climbers of the Carolinas and beyond.
