Looking Glass Adopt-a-Crag

A big thank you to all who contributed time, sweat, money and products to make Saturday's Adopt-a-Crag a big success! We had wonderful weather and a great crew who came together to support The Access Fund, The Carolina Climbers Coalition and the Southeastern Climbers Coalition.

Groups worked on trail access to The Nose Area, the South End, the North End and Hidden Wall. The pesky log that has been on The North End trail for some months has been dispatched and The Hidden Wall is no longer so "hidden." This climbing area was clearly heavily hit by last winter and appeared to have seen little traffic recently. After we finished our trail work, we enjoyed the fruits of our labor, and climbers hopped on Hidden Wall classics Carbo Man and Hidden Agenda.

The Silent Auction to benefit the CCC was a big success due to generous support from Misty Mountain, LaSportiva, Black Diamond and Mountain Khakis in conjunction with Looking Glass Outfitters and Fox Mountain Guides. Lucky bidders ended up with a rope, a crash pad, climbing shoes, awesome pants and goodies thanks to these brands and the CCC collected some well-deserved funds to continue paying off the Rumbling Bald Boulders.

Thank you for supporting NC climbing!
