This spring brought many changes to the wonderful mountains of Western North Carolina, some personal and some recreational.  One of the best things to happen here was a month long visit to the area from the Access Fund Conservation Team.  Jeff and Dave drove the Jeep Compass with tools trailer in tow from Boulder, CO straight to NC to sample some of our excellent rock and help the CCC with their never ending quest for stewardship to our climbing areas. These guys worked at Laurel Knob with local hardman Nathan Brown for three rainy days and then with the ASU outdoor programs group at Rumbling Bald for a huge revamping of the West Side, climber owned, boulder field.  Check out the recap video!  LGO's very own Phil Hoffmann makes a cameo.

Michael's Belay Glasses: http://www.belayglass.com/ Don't crane your neck while belaying. Wear these glasses and look forward to gaze upward saving on neck strain. They allow the belayer to concentrate their attention to the task at hand, especially on long, protracted climb sessions. These glasses are cheap, roughly 1/4th the cost of the other belay glasses in the market.

Hey Guys, My partner is a very good rock climber, so I have to do a lot of belaying. I was hurting my neck while belaying for long hours. So I bought Mike's Belay Glasses from http://www.belayglass.com/ I wear these glasses and look forward to gaze upward saving on neck strain. They allow me to concentrate their attention to the task at hand, especially on long, protracted climb sessions. These glasses are cheap, roughly 1/4th the cost of the other belay glasses in the market. Check it out.
