We are reigniting the Carolina Climbers Conservation Corps (C4)!
To create new climbing access areas and sustain impacts on existing climbing areas. We hope to raise $10,000 before we hire up to 4 people whose previous employment was affected by Covid-19 layoffs. We hope to hire 2 people in the Piedmont and 2 people in the Western NC Mts. Part time, temporary work. Flexible schedule. Once the $10,000 goal is met, we will hire and keep the C4 team working until funds run out. We will continue to fundraise to keep the team working.
-Pilot and Moores: Working in various existing climbing areas with resource rehabilitation needs like Pilot and Moores Wall.
-Stony Mountain Vineyard Boulders: As of June 2021, we confirmed brand new bouldering access at Stony Mountain Vineyard in Albermarle, NC. The C4 Team will be constructing a brand new trail system to these newly accessible boulders.
Western Mountains C4 Projects:
-McKinney Gap Boulders: This will be a top priority for C4. A brand new trail needs to be built to lead to this brand new access to roughly 100 quality boulder problems in Burnsville, NC. Big thanks to Southeastern Trust for Parks and Land for working with us on this new access initiative.
-Chimney Rock Village Boulders Trail: Complete the new trail build to this new access area.
