The CCC, in partnership with BlueWater Ropes, Sierra Nevada Brewing, Drew Dekle, Urban Escape Vehicles, Farm to Feet, Drawings for Dirtbags, Beanstalk Builders, Tracy Martin Art, Millsaps Creative, The Hub Outdoors, Fixed Line Media, Metolius, REI, Ground Up Publishing, and Black Dome Mountain Sports, are proud to continue the Protectors Program 2020! The 2019 Protectors Program raised $7500 for supporting access in the Carolinas and we hope to do the same this year! If you love the fact that the CCC has protected or created public access to areas like Pumpkintown, Rocky Fork, 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. If you love the fact that through the CCC, climbers have a unified voice for access to public and private lands, conservation education, bolt replacement, resource management, and trail work, then this program is for you.

Since the Carolina Climbers Coalition is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, donations are tax deductible minus the value of the benefits package.

Thank you so much for your past and potential future support of the Carolina Climbers Coalition. Without people like you, we would not have access to many wild and wonderful places, our cliffs would be less cared for and conservation education for area climbers would be unheard of. Thank you for helping preserve, protect, and expand climbing in the Carolinas and beyond.
