In February 2021, we formed our first CRAG STEWARD program. The goal is the have 1-2 long term volunteers allocated for a single crag or boulder field. Each Crag Steward's task is to assess the needs of the indiividual crag a few times per year: trail maintenance, base repair, erosion mitigation, parking issues, trash clean up, bolt replacement, rare species monitoring, graffiti clean up, etc. The CCC regional reps and Board of Directors serve as the bridge between the Crag Steward and the land manager of that crag to ensure we are in compliance with their volunteer expectations.
Anyone want to save money, help the environment, AND support the CCC?! A Better Solar Solution, an Asheville-based solar company servicing North and South Carolina, will donate $1,000 to the CCC for every climber who decides to make the switch to solar through ABSS! Go to their website to sign up for a free consultation and be sure to say you were referred by the CCC in the message section to be sure we get the donation while you are saving the planet. And tell your friends! Anyone who mentions the CCC while signing up is a potential $1,000 towards climber-owned and protected land!
Climbers need partners and these organizations know it. The organizations below support the access and stewardship efforts of the CCC on a continual basis.
