Will you help us open and sustain climbing areas by supporting the Carolina Climbers Conservation Corps (C4)? 



To create new climbing access areas and sustain impacts on existing climbing areas. Our C4 Team is a group of climber/ trail builders hired to create new access and improve existing access in the Western Mountains and Piedmont. Our C4 Team leaders also work with volunteers and partnering organizations to build needed climbing infrastructure. 

Current 2024 Projects: 

-Sauratown Hidden Cliffs Trail: We have worked with Camp Hanes to confirm public access to a brand new climbing area in the Piedomnt! We will be building a roughly 1/2 mile trail to access this new cliff. 

-Raven Rock: We have worked with private land owners to confirm new access to this amazing area! C4 is building the trail as of 2024. Graffiti removal and invasive removal is ongoing.
