Updated Web Site

We've made some changes! New hosting provider (faster, more responsive pages), latest and greatest versions of the web site content management system and the membership management system. 

New look and feel, easy access to climbing area waivers on every page, better looking e-mail newsletters, easier search for membership status and rebolting work, month and list view for the events calendar, site search, and more! The site is also more mobile friendly and should work well across all devices. 

Pisgah Nantahala Forest Plan

Almost ⅓ of America’s climbing is on National Forest lands. In North Carolina, on Pisgah & Nantahala National Forest alone, there are thousands of boulder problems and climbing routes on many dozens of discrete crags and boulderfields. Popular, historic, and beloved climbing areas like Linville Gorge, Looking Glass Rock, Whitesides, Cedar Rock and others are all found on the more than 1 million acres of Pisgah & Nantahala National Forest. In the Carolinas and across the country, National Forests are a significant and precious climbing resource.

Peregrine Closure Moved at Laurel Knob

The peregrine eyrie (nesting location) has moved at Laurel Knob. It is no longer on Fathom and it is now in the Dillard Canyon. Two actions are effective immediately:

All routes in the Dillard Canyon are closed until Aug 15.

All routes right of Dillard Canyon are now open year-round.

Thank you for respecting peregrine falcon closures and our efforts to protect this great species.
