WNC Climbers Weekend!
The Looking Glass Trail Day has been expanded to become a small celebration of WNC climbing. This year, Fox Guides is hosting a great opportunity for all of us Southeast/Western North Carolina climbers. I stole this description from the CCC website...
"WNC Climbers Weekend @ Looking Glass Rock.
This year Fox Mountain Guides is expanding the classic Looking Glass Rock ‘Adopt-A-Crag’ trail day into a weekend long event for climbers from across the Southeast region to get together and to raise funds and awareness for the Access Fund, Carolina Climbers Coalition and Southeastern Climbers Coalition
The event will have three main components, Saturday 9am-1pm is the Access Fund Adopt A Crag trail day at Looking Glass Rock, with time to climb through the afternoon at the Glass. Saturday evening will be the Carolina Climbers Coalition Event of a catered BBQ, slide show and multimedia presentations from local climbers with a huge silent auction and fundraiser for the CCC. On Sunday Fox Mountain Guides and Climbing School will be offering two Climbers Self Rescue courses with 100% of the proceeds going to the Southeastern Climbers Coalition."
I was hoping to get a group of folks together and work on some of the boulderfields this year, especially the North Face boulders. If you'd be interested in that, please post a reply here or e-mail me...they may not want us to focus on the boulders unless we can get enough people involved, so a head count of those interested may help us out. So come on out to help with the trails, get some fun climbing/bouldering in, and then enjoy the Saturday night BBQ/silent auction/slide show shindig with many more like minded hooligans!
Here is a link to Fox's website, with the most detailed information and schedule of the events...
