Beta Days - Buffalo Creek Upper Boulders

 Registration is closed for this event
Join us for an exciting event, "CCC Beta Days," where climbers from the community come together for a day of climbing and connection. This event is not guided climbing, but rather an opportunity for climbers to explore CCC-managed climbing areas and interact with fellow climbers. 

Our second beta day will take place on Sunday, November 26th at Buffalo Creek Upper Boulders in Lake Lure. This beautiful location 45 minutes from Asheville provides an ideal setting for climbers to challenge themselves and discover new boulder problems.

History of Buffalo Creek Upper Boulders: In 2022, the CCC began working with Town of Lake Lure again to open a newly discovered boulder field within the park. This new boulder field is far more extensive and contains potential of 200+ problems and maybe 10-20 roped routes. FA's await! Please record your ascents on the google doc here for all to use and enjoy. This google doc contains established problems and a map of what we hope to build for the trail alignment.

We are thrilled to have Sam Rothstein, a CCC gym ambassador from Cultivate Climbing and Dan VanBrocklin from the C4 trail crew team as our hosts for the day.  We’ll also have the brand new WNC Bouldering guidebook featuring Buffalo Creek's Upper Boulders for sale at this event. 

Please note that this is not a guided climbing experience, so it is essential to bring your own climbing gear and supplies for a day in the woods. Safety is paramount, and all participants are expected to climb at their own risk. 

Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to connect with other climbers, gain a better understanding of different climbing areas, and enjoy a day filled with adventure and community. We look forward to seeing you at CCC Beta Days! 

Please contact Alycia at with questions ahead of 11/26. For day of questions, please contact Sam at 774-273-1387
