Love Valley, NC. The Carolina Climbers Coalition (CCC) and the Access Fund are thrilled to announce the purchase of a formerly privately owned bouldering area, the Maibauer Boulders (AKA Love Valley Boulders, AKA Hiddenite Boulders, AKA Local Boulders). Access to this quality boulder field has been word of mouth for years, but a real estate sale was approaching and the CCC and Access Fund are honored to secure climbing access to this property in perpetuity. The CCC has purchased this property with the assistance of an Access Fund Conservation loan. We now need your help to raise $135,000 to secure this wonderful boulder field for you and for generations to come.
Access: We will open the area on select volunteer days until the parking lot is built and the trails/ landings have been built to sustain the impacts of public access. We hope to have parking and trails done by winter 2022. Once the parking and trails are complete, the area will be open and conserved for your climbing enjoyment. More information can be discovered about Maibauer on our landing page here. Please stay tuned for our volunteer days at carolinaclimbers.org/events.
CCC now needs the help of local climbers and conservationists to raise $135,000 to pay back the loan used to purchase the property, to build the parking lot, and to fund the long-term stewardship and legal defense costs associated with owner the Maibauer Boulders.
