Preserving, protecting, and expanding your climbing opportunities
Nearly 40 participants warmed up a sharp and frosty Saturday morning by really shaping up SC Table Rock's climbers' trail. Deadfall removal, fence and step installation, and general grunt work were cranked out by all. Thank you volunteers and park staff!!
A few remaining daylight hours allowed for some quick cragging and bouldering. (STAY TUNED: Pics coming soon!)
The complimentary BBQ and vegi chili hit the spot and we raised nearly $700 for the CCC thanks to our gear raffle and a generous cash donation from Sunrift Adventures!
The slide show and a bit of exciting video brought the evening to a close with a great tour of NC/SC classics and obscurities.
Thanks and welcome to 3 new members of the CCC board!
Brad Woolf - At-large member

START TIME: SATURDAY-8:00 AM
Please be in the main parking area @ 7:45 (The park gates
open @ 7). The main parking area
is just south of the nature center--see map. Entering through the west gate is more straightforward but the
East gate entrance provides a great spot to view the east face.

Stone Wall Action
SWA was TRSP's first route and one that truly exemplifies the impeccable style of the late Doc Bayne. A must do for any serious 5.11 NC trad climber; Classic face climbing with amazing features, well protected cruxes, and just enough spice to keep your attention!
Local School System
Undoubtedly a modern classic! A very light rack and draws takes climbers through some of the wildest features on the mountain!
Please stay in tuned for more trail day info!
