We have completely overhauled the CCC web site. The new site is much more interactive and lets you, the CCC member, contribute content somewhere other than just the message boards. We have also overhauled and replaced the membership system and integrated it into the site as well. CCC members (current and expired) can log in with their old amember username and password - if you forgot your password, use the "request password" link to get a new one.

This summer the CCC has strengthened the relationship between the generous businesses who contribute to our mission by organizing a Corporate Affiliates Program. Numerous businesses have donated goods, services and made financial contributions to help us meet our fund raising goals. We would like to say thanks by helping to provide advertising through our website and the events we organize.
The program is similar to others in use by other organizations with the exception of our named levels. For companies and businesses who are interested in helping to support our mission, please click the Sponsors tab above. A PDF explaining the details of the program can also be downloaded off of the sponsors page.
Sunday evening at the Carolina Brewery in downtown Carrboro, almost 30 climbers got together for the first ever Brewfest, organized by Brandon Hensinger of Ascents Adventure Consultants with generous support from Andrew and Luis of the Triangle Rock Club. Folks were treated to ample food and more beer than most could drink (well almost). Pat Goodman entertained folks with a wonderful multimedia presentation of his adventures in North Carolina, his most recent expedition to India and some awesome footage from a sailing expedition to the Bahamas. One of the best parts of the event was that it served as a wonderful opportunity to get folks together to meet as a community.
At Camp Merrie-Woode on Saturday, May 9th, CCC and Cashiers-area climbing enthusiasts celebrated the completion of CCC's Laurel Knob acquisition. Because of the generous support of the outdoor and rock climbing industry, as well as rock climbers the world over, the loans which made the initial purchase of Laurel Knob possible are now completely paid off. Climbers from North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and elsewhere attended the party.
