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. 

Solar Panels + Climbing Access

Anyone want to save money, help the environment, AND support the CCC?! A Better Solar Solution, an Asheville-based solar company servicing North and South Carolina, will donate $1,000 to the CCC for every climber who decides to make the switch to solar through ABSS! 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. We are excited to have the team together! Please come out and join us on upcoming stewardship days almost any day of the week.

C4, Round 2!

The Carolina Climbers Conservation Corps (C4) is back! Will you help us open new climbing areas and take care of our existing areas? 

We need your help to open new climbing areas and to bolster the sustainability of our existing climbing areas. Big thanks to the American Adventure Service Corps and Mountain Home Caretakers as our first $1000 business contributors!

Southeastern Trust for Parks and Land (STPAL) has preserved 750 wonderful acres at their Bald Mountain Creek Preserve near Burnsville, NC. We have several great news items about this conserved land and STPAL:

1. STPAL has been amazing to work with as partners in outdoor recreation

2. STPAL land holds several boulders and STPAL is excited to have the CCC as partners to provide access to the outdoor recreation assets of the preserved land (AKA boulders).
