Mike Reardon - Executive Director

Mike has been promoting the expansion of public climbing access throughout the Carolinas since his start with the Carolina Climbers Coalition in 2009. Little Bearwallow Falls, Eagle Rock, Hidden Valley Rescue and Climbing Management Plans, Maibauer Boulders, Raven Rock, Hickory Creek Boulders, Table Rock Climbers Access Trail, and Buffalo Creek Park climbing are a few examples of projects that were lead or initiated by Mike. His focus as the Executive Director of the CCC is to utilize people's strengths and passions to bolster the mission of the CCC. By building on the gifts that others bring to the table, we can accomplish great things! Mike has a passion for, and experience with grant writing, working with land owners, event planning, conservation efforts, developing climbing policies, developing climbing routes, climbing documentation, rebolting, climbing history, and trail development, layout, and design. 

As of February 1, 2019 Mike is now the Executive Director of the CCC. He lives with his wife, son and daughter, in Asheville, NC.
