Pumpkintown is the southwest facing cliff on the major escarpment in Table Rock State Park. Special thanks to Table Rock State Park officials for all of their support in opening this great resource! The Carolina Climbers Coalition has recieved a $1200 Access Fund grant to aid in funding the climbers approach trail construction. The American Alpine Club also provided a $700 grant for tools. SC State Parks have also recieved a grant to help fund the education of two CCC members plus SC State Park staff in trail design and machine work. The trail will begin construction in Feb 2020. This new trail will give climbers access to a never been open cliff in South Carolina. The cliff hosts some of the most impeccable granite in the US with 1-3 pitch in length climbing possibilities. Climbing at the cliff is considered open but there is not a feasible approach trail yet.
Stay tuned for updates and considering becoming a CCC member to support projects like this near you.
