The CCC, in partnership with Rab, Petzl, Scarpa, Joey Henson Art, Nicolas Colquitt Art, Ground Up Sales, and Ground Up Publishing, are proud to introduce the Protectors Program. If you love the fact that the CCC has protected or created public access to areas like Laurel Knob, Buckeye Knob, Hidden Valley, Asheboro Boulders, Big Rock, Buffalo Creek, Eagle Rock, Rumbling Bald, Gerton Ice, Sauratown, then this program is for you.
We are honored and so thankful to receive another round of stewardship grants from our friends at REI. This year, $5,000 will support the construction of a climber's access trail along the base of recently opened Eagle Rock and $20,000 will fund the completion of the Sauratown trail. REI has been a huge source of support for CCC projects, starting with the Hidden Valley acquisition. To date, we've received $67,000 for trails, acquisitions and parking areas and can't thank REI enough for their support and partnership!
Please be aware that as of 4/9/2018, the North End of Moore's Wall is closed to all users due to a nesting site for Peregrine Falcons. State biologists have observed a pair of Falcons showing mating and nesting behvior and this closure helps to increase the chances that they will be able to successfully nest. All climbing routes, bouldering and the access trail are closed.
Here's the official closure notice:
