Moores Wall Parking Temporary Closure

You did it! You helped us raise funds to expand the parking lot at Moores Wall! Contractors are getting ready to get to work thanks to your contributions and patience in helping expand the parking for future generations. We have not yet completed our fundraising goal, but we are close enough to go in for the full send! 

Contractors have begun moving in heavy machinery. Please note that the parking will be closed during construction, now until mid September. In the meantime, please park at Torys Den and walk in. 

THANK YOU!

CCC Crag Stewards

In February 2021, we formed our first CRAG STEWARD program. The goal is the have 1-2 long term volunteers allocated for a single crag or boulder field. Each Crag Steward's task is to assess the needs of the indiividual crag a few times per year: trail maintenance, base repair, erosion mitigation, parking issues, trash clean up, bolt replacement, rare species monitoring, graffiti clean up, etc. The CCC regional reps and Board of Directors serve as the bridge between the Crag Steward and the land manager of that crag to ensure we are in compliance with their volunteer expectations.

Anyone want to save money, help the environment, AND support the CCC?!

Go to their website to sign up for a free consultation and be sure to say you were referred by the CCC in the message section to be sure we get the donation while you are saving the planet. And tell your friends! Anyone who mentions the CCC while signing up is a potential $1,000 towards climber-owned and protected land!

C4 Team

You have done it! Thanks to your donations, we have been able to hire two teams of three people each to serve new or existing crags in both the Piedmont and the Western Mountains! Our new C4 teams consist of Elizabeth Taft, Dan VanBrocklin, Dain Canter for the Western Mts Team, and Henry Ritterspush, Shelley Carter, and Bryce Mahoney for the Piedmont Team.
