Good news for climbers; many peregrine closures have been lifted early this year! The CCC works closely with biologists of the North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commision, as well as the USFS to ensure that protections of the species and climbing management are in balance. Close monitroing of peregrine eyries that result in early closure-lifts are one example of the benefit of that relationship. Thank you to all people who respect these closure zones.
We had a most amazing Rumble this year. The turn out was bigger than ever before! Huge thanks to all volunteers, sponsors, and competitors who came out to support! We had over 250 competitors and over 350 participants! $2000 of the profits of this event were donated to the Town of Lake Lure for their Buffalo Creek Park parking lot expansion. We also hope to have some great NEW ACCESS news coming soon, and each dollar spent at the Rumble will be going towards these new access efforts.
The Carolina Climbers Coalition work closely with USFS and NC Wildlife Biologists each year to ensure that peregrine falcon closures are accurate per eyrie sites, and help balance conservation of the species with reasonable access to climbing destinations. Thank you, climbers, for respecting these closure zones and for helping protect this amazing species.
Trango and Tenaya Climbing have been pivotal in our success as an organization. Each year, Trango/ Tenaya's support helps us open new climbing areas, maintain impacts on existing climbing areas, and bring together the community. Take a look at this article from Outdoor Sports Wire, highlighting Trango/ Tenayas support of the CCC!
